CIM of Ave is the organisation that coordinates the municipalities of Ave, a Portuguese NUTS 3 region that includes a total of eight municipalities with an area of 1453 km² and a population of around 430,000 inhabitants (2011). The territory of Ave is very heterogeneous which that can be classified around three different realities: Guimarães, Vila Nova de Famalicão and Vizela are urban municipalities with a high population density. The opposite situation can be observed in Cabeceiras de Basto, Mondim de Basto and Vieira do Minho, which are markedly rural municipalities. Between these two areas, Fafe and Póvoa de Lanhoso are a transition zone, occupying 24% of the territory of the Ave and representing 17% of its population. The region has a dynamic expanding business community, mainly composed of SMEs, and industry is the primary economic activity.
