Connecting business and finance across the globe
During the last fifty years, globalisation has fundamentally changed the world. New technologies, the internet and social networks span the entire planet, connecting people, companies and governments.While trade and finance flows have created a tightly interconnected global economy, the physical, legal and fiscal boundaries have not yet disappeared. Even in a Europe that adopted the Single Market 25 years ago and a single currency 15 years ago, each country continues to be governed by rules and practices that correspond to its history, economy, geography and culture.
Already long before these transformations reshaped the global economy, Luxembourg had understood the importance of building bridges between markets. Decades of international expertise combined with state-of-the-art infrastructure make Luxembourg today one of the EU’s leading destinations for investors and companies alike.
Luxembourg is ranked 1st worldwide for finance connectivity and 2nd worldwide for services connectivity.
