The Most Promising Sectors : Trades

The trades are an important sector of the Bergerac area’s economy. Construction and services are the most dynamic sectors.

This dynamism is expressed in the region by interesting and rewarding initiatives for the profession:

• The Greater Bergerac Area supports and develops the region’s economy. To help artisans and merchants in their development, a Collective Modernization Operation has been set up!
Contact: Greater Bergerac Area and Bertrand LACOMBE Chamber of Trades and Crafts

• Artisans in certain sectors have organized to conduct joint projects. This is the case, for example in the Cadouin Community of Communes, where artisans, merchants and elected officials came together in an association and created a “Know-How” Day, an event to enhance everyone’s know-how.
Contact: Bertrand LACOMBE

• Master craftsmen have formed a network with a coordinator who organizes many activities to enhance the value of their skills and trades: Annual Exhibition of Crafts and Arts; communication; internships with artisans; the craft of art is an economic sector that is organized!
Contact: Pays du Grand Bergeracois and the Chamber of Trades and Crafts of the Dordogne

• Sustainable development companies (eco-construction, production and economic development of organic farming, bio energy, landscape enhancement ...) have formed an association and created a thematic industrial park. Located in one place, they want to create dynamics and promote a sector in full development, with support from the community. They want to develop their concept, and create an accessible showcase of their work.
Contact: CDC Montaigne and Montravel and the Ecopole association
