Yearly yield on ten-year government bonds in Belgium 1995-2018

Ten-year government bonds in Belgium had a yield of close to one percent in 2018, although the value increased compared to 2017. A ten-year government bond, or treasury note, is a debt obligation issued by a government which matures in ten years. They are considered to be a low-risk investment as they are backed by the government and their ability to raise taxes to cover its obligations. Investors track them, however, for several reasons. First, these bonds are the benchmark that guides other financial interest rates, such as fixed mortgage rates. Second, their yield will tell how investors feel about the economy. The higher the yield on a ten-year government bond, the better the economic outlook.

In August 2017, the long-term interest rate reached a value of approximately 0.73. Compared to the other Benelux countries, Belgium's interest rate is higher than that of Luxembourg or the Netherlands.
