The development of communication links puts Bourges in a strong position in the southern Paris region and at the crossroads between north and south, east and west.
With a now very diversified economic network, and a renewed university and research centre, Bourges has survived the various reorganisations of the arms industry. The city now takes its place on the national stage. The city of Bourges is home to a number of large national companies and many small and medium size companies. This economic potential supports the vitality of the city.
The Community of agglomeration Bourges Plus, for which the main mission is economic development, leads many actions and animates around twenty business or industrial parks.
