Whilst being small in terms of landmass, Belgium has made a huge impact upon the world. It is one the founding members of the European Union, with the headquarters of the EU located in Brussels, as are the headquarters of NATO. With Belgium having such worldwide significance, it’s not surprising that thousands of people are relocating there every year. There are several towns and cities in Belgium which have growing expat communities. Three of the best cities to explore are Brussels, Antwerp and Ghent.
Each of these major cities has a wealth of experiences to offer expats; Brussels is the capital city and home to many major international political organisations, plus it has a large expat community with at least 70,000 individuals from around the world living there. Antwerp has the largest diamond centre in the world with over 12,000 people working in this industry. Ghent, is another economic hub being home to the car companies’ Volvo and Honda. In addition, one of its main forms of economy is tourism, providing thousands of jobs every year at renowned cultural festivals and world class museums.
