Information and communication technology (ICT)

Recent figures show that the 'information and communication technology' (ICT) sector is extremely dynamic in Brussels, and accounts for about one-third of Belgium’s global ICT activities. Brussels’ position has been bolstered by a series of favourable conditions including strong demand in the local market, close collaboration between businesses and academia and the full, proactive support of the regional authorities.

The Brussels ICT sector is composed of a large number of small high-tech companies, as well as large multinationals such as Nokia, Microsoft, Getronics, IBM, Philips, Unisys and Econocom. Foreign companies represent two-thirds of all ICT businesses in Brussels. The most highly represented countries are France (26.5%), Germany (23.8%) and the Netherlands (6.9%).
