East Belgium - economic space with a future

Even today, the three cities - Eupen, Malmedy and Sankt Vith – form East Belgium's economic poles. Smaller, but no less interesting centers - mostly based on certain local particularities - have also developed.

But East Belgium cannot be seen as one interconnected or amalgamated industrial area. With the natural barrier of the “High Venn“, a high moor landscape, East Belgium is in effect divided into two areas (Eupen and Malmedy-St. Vith), which landscapes, economies, and cultures are extremely different from one another.

In these three areas, you will find work centers focusing on extremely different tasks and which identify East Belgium as having a variety of industries.

In addition, East Belgium's affiliation with the German language community of Belgium, with the Euregio Maas-Rhein, and with the major region of Saar-Lor-Lux, is another significant component of its variety, the cultural as well as the economic variety.

It is this variety, which opens East Belgium's door to the future, to a global economic market - dynamic, multicultural, efficient, and productive!

East Belgium (with its German language community) is a member of two “Euregions“!

> Euregio Maas-Rhein, encompassing East Belgium to the north
> Major region Saar-Lor-Wallonia-DLC to the south
> East Belgium
> The German-speaking Community
