    Companies with more than 200 workers have created three-quarters of the 83,742 new private sector jobs since the Michel government came to power in October 2014.
    A report, the conclusions of which have been made public by L’Echo today (Wednesday), states this.

    This booming trend is somewhat remarkable to the extent that small businesses actually make up 56% of private sector employment.

    The Federation of Belgian Businesses says that these good results are the dividends of measures taken by the federal executive to make Belgian businesses more competitive.

    Exporting companies, which are often the most significant in terms of personnel, are the first to benefit from this.
