Santa Maria da Feira is a socially and economically developed territory and one of the engines of the Portuguese economy, recognized for having a strongly consolidated, dynamic, innovative and export-oriented business and industrial fabric, and whose cork and footwear sectors are enormously important, both domestically and abroad, along with the strong presence of metalworking, the paper industry and activities related to the construction sector and its products.
As a result of the economic and societal dynamics we are witnessing, and the investment in new emerging sectors, there has been a recent and significant emergence of companies linked to information and communication technologies (ICT), business services and research, diagnosis, equipment and treatments in the health sector, who choose our municipality to settle.

The strategic and privileged geographic position of Santa Maria da Feira in the context of the Metropolitan Area of Porto, the excellence of its standard of accessibility, the economic dynamism, the availability of an increasingly specialized labour with a tradition in industrial activity, the existence of important industrial areas and infrastructures to support productive activity and research and development are the municipality's main competitive advantages.

Bizfeira is the central instrument in our economic and business development policy, integrating economic diplomacy, attracting foreign investment, economic partnerships, supporting companies and promoting internationalization, exports and employability.

Companies are aware of and acquainted with the conditions we provide and, above all, they know that they will always find a privileged interlocutor in the City Council, which will give them great confidence to invest and operate here, as Bizfeira will act as a strategic partner that will accompany them,  give quick and simplified answers and provide information relevant to their activity and to increase their competitiveness.
