How to increase productivity in Victoria 3

Increase everything, and lower costs!

Increasing productivity in Victoria 3 is a necessary step when trying to build a stable economy. To increase productivity in Victoria 3, you must start by ensuring your production buildings run efficiently. You can ensure production buildings are running the best they can by improving them and lowering their costs. You will want to research technologies that unlock improvements for specific businesses for the upgrade route. But for the lowering costs route, you will need to learn how to manage resources and open up new trade routes.

How to manage resource costs in Victoria 3

Managing resource costs is a vital part of raising the productivity of buildings in Victoria 3. Players can lower and manage resource costs by fully supplying all buildings and their resources needs. If production buildings are not supplied, they will cost more and more money. You can ensure all buildings are supplied by increasing the production of specific resources or opening an Import Trade Route.

Import Trade Routes are beneficial for getting essential resources you need to make more efficiently. That said, if you want a trade route open to import a resource, you can do so under either the Market tab or the Import Trade Route tab. We also recommend building resource buildings whenever you can, as producing your resources is a great way to lower resource costs.

By opening the Building tab, you can add new buildings to regions that produce the resources you need. Inside the Building tab, search for a building that produces the needed resource, and click it. After clicking on a building, you can select the province you want to place it in, and soon after, construction of the building will begin. Let the construction finish, and you will soon start producing the needed resources.
