Business dynamism and productivity growth in Belgium [28/05/2021]

This paper considers the evolution in business dynamism and its potential link with productivity growth in Belgium. Statistics on business creation, the exit of enterprises and within-industry reallocation are presented. Data on Belgian firms, covering the period 2003-2017, are used for a decomposition of productivity growth. The paper provides robust indications of the substantial contribution of productivity growth of start-ups in the early years after entry.



Better understanding the Belgian economy’s structural evolutions and its insertion in both the European Union and the world plays an important role in identifying the key factors of long-term growth.
