Export to develop your business
Wallonia is a region whose development has always been driven by trading relations with its neighbours but also with countries further afield.
The ideal geographical position and the high quality transport infrastructure have given a further boost to the natural tendency of Walloon companies to explore foreign markets.
Wallonia’s export clout is also backed up by the figures: over the past ten years, exports have witnessed a constant and significant growth (almost 10% on average per annum). This growth outstrips the European average and that of most of its neighbouring countries. A truly impressive performance, especially given the fact that more than 75% of Wallonia’s GDP is generated by exports, in a varied range of sectors. This multi-sector excellence merely reflects the performance of our companies’ products.
