The Belgian economy is considered a modern, private enterprise based economy. The country's economy is expected to reach $633 billion by 2018 at the current price. Belgium has both financial and demographic risks facing its economic future. The country's financial stability is low compared to other developed countries, as

it carries both high debt and a large fiscal deficit. The country’s current account deficit is a result of the dual issues of the Euro debt crisis and a decrease in international demand.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on Belgium and presents its findings in “Belgium Country Analysis 2013-2018: An Evaluation of Political, Social, Economic, and Business Risk.” This study provides a concise overview of the political, economic, social, technological, and business risks of the country.

Belgium country analysis report highlights that the global financial crisis disrupted the macroeconomic and financial stability of many economies including Belgium, which had sustained solid growth prior to the recession, by adversely affecting the financing facilities and external demand.
