The FPB not only publishes the results of its research, but also a set of databases. These databases can contain either historical data or forecasts.
This database collects data on foreign affiliates of Belgian companies in 1995, 2001 and 2005. It allows the top 10 entreprise groups for these three years to be established. It also includes information on the number, the host countries and the activity branch of those affiliates.

Currently, the database contains three observation periods: 1995, 2001 and 2005. All information about the development and the main results of this database is available in Working Paper 23-08.
The most important data presented in table form in the database are:
