Industrial districts and areas

The program for implementing Industrial Districts is yet another instrument available to the State for leveraging industrial development. Industrial districts make it possible to implement or relocate industrial projects and related activities.

The land in the industrial districts is sold to interested companies, at subsidized prices, as a form of financial incentive, and for that purpose the same must present an economic-financial feasibility project to the Secretariat of Economic Development, Science and Technology which, if approved, will entitle the company to reserve the land for its implementation.

The municipalities of Rio Grande do Sul also have land for industrial installations, which are negotiated with each municipality on a case-by-case basis, and may even result in property donations. The InvestRS and Sala do Investidor team assists and mediates contact with municipalities that have land suitable for their investment.

Currently, the State has land for negotiation in five industrial districts , partly in the Metropolitan Region of Porto Alegre and in the Southern Half of the State:
