Districts and Industrial Areas

The Industrial Districts implementation program is another tool that the state has to leverage industrial development. Industrial districts enable the setting up or the relocation of industrial projects and related activities.

The plots of the industrial districts are sold to interested companies at subsidized prices, as a means of financial incentives, and to have access to it the company should present a project of economic and financial feasibility to the State Department of Economic Development, Science and Technology. If the project is approved, the company will be entitled to reserve the plot for its implementation.

Some municipalities from Rio Grande do Sul have plots devoted to the setting up of industrial facilities, which are negotiated, on a case by case basis, with the investors, and may even result in property donations. The InvestRS and Investor Room teams assist and mediate contacts with the municipalities that have suitable plots for your investment.
