Countries of origin of foreign direct investment (FDI) projects in Belgium 2018

When looking at Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) projects in Belgium, the United States was the country's biggest investor in 2018 as it was responsible for roughly 50 of the 278 projects that were started that year. France and the Netherlands, which (partially) share the main languages found in Belgium, were the second and the third investor that year. The source notes that investments from the United Kingdom (UK) increased from 13 in 2017 to 25 in 2018, a possible consequence of Brexit uncertainty. The potential event of a "No-deal Brexit" in October 2019 is forecast to cause big job losses in certain areas of Belgium's economy.
