Moravian-Silesian Investment and Development (MSID) is a joint-stock company 100% owned by the Moravian-Silesian Region. It was established in 1993 as the Regional Development Agency (RDA) in order to support development throughout the Region. MSID’s role is to implement the Region’s development policies, including a wide range of projects and initiatives which benefit companies, institutions and individuals throughout the Region.
In 2018 the Regional Development Agency became the MSID. This name change reflected a shift in focus, as the MSID became one of the specialist agencies tasked with helping the Region to implement its development strategy ‘Vision 2024: New Energy for the Moravian-Silesian Region’. MSID’s core activities focus on supporting business, entrepreneurship and employment in the Region.
MSID operates in three core priority areas. Priority 1 is support for investment in the Region. Priority 2 is support for business (including the planning and implementation of development projects). Priority 3 is marketing. All three core priority areas are closely integrated and coordinated to boost regional development across a broad spectrum of activities, bringing benefits to the Region’s people, companies and institutions.
Within Priority 1 (investment support), MSID offers assistance to current investors and helps to attract new investors to the Region. We maintain a complete database of potential investment locations, as well as offering a range of consulting services and organizing international conferences and seminars. As part of our activities within Priority 2 (business support), we devise projects and development strategies to support sustainable development throughout the Region. Priority 3 (marketing) focuses on promoting our Region not only as an excellent business and investment location, but also as a great place to live.
