Vogler Economic Development Consultants



Our strength is the interdisciplinary and international experience of our team, with backgrounds in economics, business planning and administration, marketing, event management and architecture. All our consultants combine project experience in OECD and developing countries. We also cooperate with a network of other consulting firms to complement competencies and capabilities.
