Luxembourg – the ideal European business location

Luxembourg has been putting in place its forward looking data innovation strategy for several years already, investing in becoming Europe’s most sustainable and trusted data economy.

Luxembourg’s digital infrastructure, already outstanding in terms of connectivity, cybersecurity expertise and secure data storage capacities, is being further boosted, by the business-oriented high performance computer (HPC) MeluXina launched in spring 2021, one of several other public and private initiatives to help businesses innovate and grow nationally and internationally.

Combined with a pro-business environment and policies, a solid and stable economy, an international talent pool, and classed as the most international country in Europe, Luxembourg should definitely be on your map of countries to explore as you look to expand your business across Europe.  Learn more.

Common sustainability goals and a promising partnership

Promoting sustainable growth and mitigating climate change are major priorities in both South Korea and Luxembourg. Cleantech is one of the priority sectors of Luxembourg’s data-driven innovation strategy, and the South Korean government is actively supporting companies in the fields of smart mobility and green technologies. ASEIC, the ASEM SMEs Eco-Innovation centre, operating under the Korean Ministry of SMEs and Startups recently signed an MoU with the Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, supported by Luxinnovation, to set up a Smart Green Business Centre in Luxembourg.
