The fight for employment and innovation has always been a priority for the Occitanie Region. But now is not the time for defeatism and we welcome this partnership with the Septuors ceremony which highlights the jewels of the regional economy. Today, more than ever, it is important to show companies and their employees our support, our desire to support them in their development and our recognition of supporting the local economy.

Support for local businesses is thus the cornerstone of the regional recovery plan launched at the start of the crisis and which will continue in 2021. As a public service to the economy, the Occitanie Region supports businesses in order to maintain jobs and skills, but also to create favorable conditions for a rapid and sustainable return to activity. As such, 300 million euros are allocated in the 2021 budget to emergency and recovery measures.
