2d Quarter
121 New Companies

During the second quarter of 2018, 121 new companies were entered in the region's commercial register. This figure, though positive, represents a small decline when compared to the same quarter in 2017 (Q2 2017: 131 and Q2 2018 without Chexbres: 121). As a reminder, since January 1st this year, the area for our analysis also includes the municipality of Chexbres, who joined the region's economic development agency. Inasmuch as possible, we shall provide corrected figures in order to facilitate the comparison with 2017.

In keeping with the first quarter, this result remains encouraging, as it is above the quarterly average of 2017 (116 new units). When taking into account all business activities (new registrations / arrivals vs departures / bankruptcies / companies that cease trading / dissolutions), the balance is clearly positive, with a total of 53 units (or 51 without Chexbres).
This figure is in line with the upward trend noted in 2017, though it represents a slower pace.
Ce chiffre tend à s’inscrire dans le prolongement de la tendance d’amélioration constatée en 2017, avec un rythme toutefois légèrement moins soutenu.

Promove looks forward to sharing a new situation review with you in early October.
