With more than 255,000 inhabitants, Ghent is the second most populous city in Belgium. Its museums, its many cultural events attract collectors and art lovers from around the world. Its altarpiece, «The Mystic Lamb», one of the most famous paintings in the world, masterpiece of the Van Eyck brothers, is admired by 170,000 visitors a year.

A flourishing economy

Flanders, unlike Wallonia, is one of the most dynamic economic regions in Europe. With a very low unemployment rate (6.1% in January 2019 according to the Flemish Ministry of Employment), Flanders is an exception to the flat country. Ghent, which is its focal point, is a city rich both economically and culturally. Effervescent, dynamic and rich in history, Ghent and its famous «Millionaires quarter» where the biggest fortunes of the region nestle, is THE CITY in Belgium not to be missed. There are definitely customers for you in Ghent!
