Situated on the major trunk roads of Western Switzerland, about fifty zones of development, identified by the governments as having priority, offer made-to-measure benefits in support of enterprises that start an activity, to help them be more efficient or to strengthen their business relations.

Moreover, the region offers plenty of ground, commercial and industrial buildings and private housing for families, and two World Trade Centers, in Lausanne and Geneva.

In all the procedures of purchasing land, premises and housing, the governments in Western Switzerland back enterprises and private individuals, particularly as regards administrative and legal aspects. These are largely similar to the rest of the European Union (EU), in that they preserve the interests of the commercial or industrial activity as well as those of the environment, all very important in Western Switzerland.

Legislation in matters of water and environmental protection is generally considered as an example of best practice in the rest of the world.
