Belgium Economy

Back to Economic Data Main Page

Belgium's economy has largely prospered due to its central geographic location, developed transport network, and diversified industrial and commercial base. Except for coal, which is not economical to exploit, Belgium has essentially no natural resources, however, most traditional industrial sectors are still represented. Despite this heavy industrial component, services make up 74.9% of the GDP which is at $469 billion according to 2010 estimates.
