Luxembourg ville

Advantageous geographical position in Europe

Located strategically in the centre of Europe, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is a close-by and easily accessible destination. Well-linked to the rest of Europe thanks to an excellent network of motorways, an international airport and good rail connections (e.g. TGV from Paris), the Grand-Duchy is close to its European neighbours.

An open, neutral and safe country

The security of people and property in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg constitues an undeniable asset, and the Mercer Quality of Living Survey regularly ranks Luxembourg-City as one of the safest capitals worldwide.

Political and social stability

The political environment in Luxembourg is characterised by stable governments. In addition, the Grand-Duchy is a country where negotiation and dialogue are the basis for social peace. On the other side of the social coin we find social progress, social justice and respect for labour.

Easy communications with public authorities

In a country as small as Luxembourg, there are less bureaucratic hurdles, and the close relations between the business world and political decision-makers are a certain advantage.

Regulatory framework favouring companies

Luxembourg is characterised by its high degree of adaptability to economic changes, by the high level of administration flexibility and reactivity and by a regulatory framework favouring companies.

Competitive tax regime

The liberal economic policy practiced by successive governments has helped create a predictable fiscal environment, particularly favourable for investments. Luxembourg has signed a large number of double tax agreements, from which the companies located in the country benefit. Luxembourg has a history of very competitive tax rates.

A highly-skilled and multilingual international workforce

The Grand-Duchy is populated by citizens from more than 150 different countries. Over time, these different cultures have greatly influenced the country, just as Luxembourg has been influenced by its geographical position at the crossroads between the Latin and Germanic cultures. These various influences are to be found at all levels: culture, art, gastronomy, sports... Moreover, the majority of Luxembourg inhabitants have a command of at least three languages, an obvious advantage vis-à-vis other countries.

An excellent insfrastructure

The Grand-Duchy has an excellent insfrastructure, whether with regard to its basic insfrastructure (transport, care facilities, business parks, etc.) or to its ICT infrastructure (broadband network, data storage centres, etc.)

Investment and RDI support

New investment support instruments and the new legislative framework in support of R&D and innovation (Law of 5 June 2009) are helping stimulate RDI activities in companies, regardless of their size or sector.

High quality of life

According to several major international surveys, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg is a country with an extremely high quality of life.
