Designated as land of culture and creation of the Greater Paris, the territory covered by the Plaine Commune is lucky to count on many assets. With an important industrial heritage, the sector has known a fast and sustained development since the start of the new millennium, thanks particularly to the economic boom of the creation industry, as demonstrated by Luc Besson's Cité européenne du Cinéma, established in Saint-Denis in 2012.
By bringing together numerous key figures from both the cultural and innovation sectors, the area has become over the years the meeting-point for worldwide professionals of those industries. Various international fairs and forums are therefore organised there each year.
Benefiting from a rich and busy transport network, only a few minutes away from Paris and from Charles de Gaulle airport, the urban community is also thriving thanks to its strategic positioning, at the heart of the French metropolis. In that way, the important economic developments of the Ile-de-France will be witnessed in the area of la Plaine Commune with the establishment in the next few years of the head offices of companies such as SFR, Véolia, or the regional offices of the SNCF.
