2021 saw a major event in terms of communication: adaptation of communication materials “Basque Invest” and production of videos testimonials!

This year, with the NOTRe act coming into force, the brand new Basque Country Agglomeration Community wished to support the Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the New Aquitaine Regional Council, working for the economic development of our territory by financing our research and support effort with industrial investors across the Basque Country.

A new tripartite agreement was signed in 2021 formalising this partnership.

Basque Invest has also been financed since 2009 by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).

By the end of 2021, 29 new companies set up in the Region, creating an estimated 326 jobs over the next three years. The prospecting work represents almost half of the balance sheet of the action and is therefore in the lead in 2021, followed by prescriptions for a third and prospecting via social networks continues to progress with almost 23%. As for the 3 most represented sectors of activity, digital confirms its leading position with 48%, followed by the health and well-being sector with 17%, production crafts with 13% and finally blue growth and aeronautics with 9%.
