Since World War II ended, the city has become a major hub for international relations and politics. It has also become home to many international organizations, diplomats, civil servants, and politicians. It has cemented its status as the “de facto” European Union capital as it has within its borders numerous major EU institutes like the legislative, executive-political, and administrative-legislative branches.  

In its role as the administrative center for both Belgium and Europe, the economy of Brussels is predominantly service-oriented. The city is filled with global and regional headquarters of companies and multinationals, European institutes, different federal and local administrations, etc. It also has its fair share of craft industries like the Lambic brewery and Cantillion Brewery.

Additionally, its 550,000 amounts to 17.7% of the entire employment in Belgium. The GDP per capita of the region is almost double of the whole country’s GDP.
