Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Economic outlines and opportunities for innovation
The seafood sector (fishing, processing and aquaculture) plays an important role in the economy of the islands. The building and construction sector has also an important part in the economy, and is strongly dependent on public procurement. Tourism is a sector that tends to develop and constitutes the main challenge for the years to come. Key opportunities for innovation
- Crowdsourcing / crowdfunding for gathering Saint Pierre et Miquelon youth and diaspora on new projects
- Energy efficiency / vernacular architecture/ participatory housing
- Social enterprise in gardening and horticultural sectors, waste management, recycling and construction
- Scientific tourism and research with the National Geographic.
