The province of Brescia is widely known as a highly industrialised area, a premise confirmed by 2011 sector statistics which reveal a surplus value figure of 34.8%. Brescia ranks fifth in Lombardy for GDP per capita (€30,308), an increase of 3.6% between 2009 and 2010. It is thus well above the Italian average.

Another important statistic is the ongoing growth in the service sector, which reached a level of 63.1% last year. Looking at infrastructure, eco-power plants and communications networks function particularly well. Banking services are highly reliable and efficient.

Finally, Brescia's excellent road network and strategic position as an intersection for traffic between France and Austria and between Germany/central Europe and Rome make the area very attractive to investors.
