Economy

Belgium has a modern economy based on private enterprises with highly developed transport network, and diversified industrial and commercial base. Belgium imports raw materials and goods and re-exports them after further processing. Belgium has few natural resources other than fertile soils. Exports are a big part of Belgium economy, and this makes Belgium dependent on world trade. Belgium's trade advantages are derived from its central geographic location and a highly skilled, multilingual, and productive work force.
