Høyanger rose from industry around 1900 and became a melting pot for people from all over the country and neighbouring countries. Today industry is still very much important, but is supplemented by agriculture, fish farming, and both small scale and up-and-coming industries. The region is focusing on how to attract young workers, entrepreneurs and new businesses, and to keep the established companies as well. The municipality is also taking in both asylum seekers and immigrants so focus on integration is high.
