Key Industries

A growing number of investors are acquiring stakes in Iceland’s dynamic, high-tech enterprises, or making strategic purchases in production and services related to their own international activities. Investors have found an investor-friendly environment with high professional standards in all the support services that a business launch needs.

The Icelandic Government acknowledges that Foreign Direct Investment is paramount to the continued growth of Iceland´s economy. Special emphasis is on generous support and incentives for Research and Development, incentives for green investments and for foreign experts. Iceland focuses on a favorable environment for businesses in general, including low corporate tax (20% – among the lowest in the EU), availability of land and efficiency in a European legislative framework.
