  1. Belgian growth companies keep the local economy afloat

    While we are bombarded with negative news on banks, insurers and tech producers, Belgian growth companies appear to be keeping the Belgian economy afloat.

It is therefore not surprising that the prices paid are increasing across all sectors and business sizes. These are the findings from a survey of 142 Belgian mergers and acquisitions experts into their experiences over the past year.
