The Fribourg region is replete with natural beauty, historical and cultural riches and age-old traditions. These assets also have a role to play in business development. The growth of tourism around Fribourg is a good opportunity to diversify the economy of the Canton. The cantonal government makes every effort to promote quality tourism so that the aims of a careful use of land resources and the environment can be respected.
