Exports, Firm Heterogeneity and Employment in Belgium: an Input-Output Analysis [29/01/2020]

This paper presents an estimation of employment sustained directly and indirectly by exports based on an export-heterogeneous input-output table. In this table, manufacturing industries are disaggregated according to the exporter status of firms in order to account for within-industry differences in input structures. According to our results, export-sustained employment in Belgium amounted to 1.32 million jobs in 2010, which corresponds to 29.5 % of total employment.

  • study the relationships between different branches.

In this context, the Federal Planning Bureau  is responsible for drawing up, on behalf of the National Accounts Institute (NAI):

  • the five-yearly input-output tables.
