Set up your business in the centre of the European market

In Wallonia, 500 million consumers are on your doorstep.


According to the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2020, the Walloon motorway network and rail network are among the densest in Europe.

By lorry, it is possible to reach a population of almost 60 million inhabitants in 4 hours and an area comprising about 20 major cities in 8 hours. In terms of rail, the main private industrial connections to the national and international network allow companies wishing to be effective and environmentally-friendly to opt for rail or for combined rail/road transport.

With Liège Airport, voted the best cargo airport in the world in 2020 and Brussels South Charleroi Airport, Wallonia has two airports totaling, in 2020, 1,120,643 tonnes of freight and nearly 2.6 million passengers (a decrease of 69 % compared to the record year of 2019, the COVID 19 crisis having impacted passenger traffic volumes in 2020).


Connected to the major ports of northern Europe, the Wallonia river network establishes the junction with France, Flanders, the Netherlands, Germany and beyond with the main transatlantic and transoceanic lines. The Autonomous Port of Liège, first Belgian inland port and third inland port in Europe (14 million tonnes and 115.921 containers in 2020) has easy access to major European ports.


Wallonia is near Brussels, the headquarters for major international institutions, the head office for many multinationals and home to more than 300 international law firms or consultants.

Also, the Belgian capital offers no fewer than 21 international schools and, along with Washington, it is one of the largest journalism centres in the world. More than 100 foreign banks have set up branches there.
