  • L’activité économique, l’emploi et les finances publiques belges garderont des séquelles de la crise du coronavirus pendant plusieurs années (23/06/2020)

    La récession profonde de 2020 sera suivie d’une reprise économique. Mais cette reprise ne suffira sans doute pas à récupérer, à un horizon de cinq ans, le niveau d’activité économique qui aurait été possible sans la pandémie. Si ce scénario se confirme, il aura des conséquences sur l’emploi et le chômage. Les finances publiques, déjà fragiles sans cette crise, en sortiront encore davantage fragilisées.

  • Le coronavirus secoue le secteur électrique belge (18/06/2020)

    La période inédite de long confinement qui a été décidée suite à la propagation du coronavirus à l’échelle mondiale a eu des répercussions dans tous les domaines de la société. Compte tenu de la nature, de l’ampleur et de la célérité de la crise sanitaire, les marchés de l’énergie n’ont pas été épargnés et le paysage énergétique en a été perturbé.  Certains points faibles du système actuel sont ainsi apparus au grand jour.

  • Hacking of our website and data theft (12/06/2020)

    The website of the Federal Planning Bureau has been the target of a data theft. Personal data from the distribution list as well as from the registration to our activities were stolen on 8 June 2020.

  • External costs of transport (29/06/2020)

    This report quantifies the marginal external cost of transport (congestion costs and environmental costs) using the Federal Planning Bureau’s PLANET model and compares this to the transport taxes levied. These indicators were not covered in the ‘Projections of transport demand in Belgium by 2040’, published in 2019 by the Federal Planning Bureau and the FPS Mobility and Transport. In that sense this report supplements this publication.

  • Population projections 2019-2070. Update in light of the COVID-19 epidemy (02/06/2020)

    The population projections 2019-2070 were published in the beginning of March 2020, just before the first signs of COVID-19 on the Belgian territory. In light of the evolution of the epidemic and the measures taken by the National Security Council (NSC) to halt the spread of COVID-19, an update of these projections seemed indispensable.

  • The PLANET Model: Methodological Report (02/03/2020)

    PLANET is a model developed by the Belgian Federal PLANning Bureau that models the relationship between Economy and Transport. Its aim is to produce: (i) medium- and long-term projections of transport demand in Belgium, both for passenger and freight transport; (ii) simulations of the effects of transport policy measures; (iii) cost-benefit analyses of transport policy measures. This methodological report describes the main features of the PLANET model, and more specifically, the version 4.0 used for the transport outlook published in January 2019.

  • 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.

  • Total cost of ownership of electric cars compared to diesel and gasoline cars in Belgium (13/01/2020)

    In the size class “small”, BEV only have a lower TCO for an expected lifetime that exceeds most estimates of the planning horizon people use when purchasing cars. In the size class “medium”, BEVs have a lower TCO than conventional cars if their expected lifetime mileage is high enough. “Big” electric cars have higher TCO than their conventional counterparts for any reasonable assumption regarding their use profiles. 

  • Input-Output Tables 2015 (20/12/2019)

    The National Accounts Institute (NAI) presents in this publication a new version of the input-output tables at current prices for the year 2015, compiled according to the ESA 2010 methodology. Compared to the first version of the 2015 input-output tables published in December 2018, the tables presented here incorporate the occasional revision of the national accounts implemented by Belgium in 2019.

  • Updating the 2010 Belgian interregional supply and use table (25/10/2019)

    This paper describes the methodology to make the existing interregional supply and use table (ISUT) of 2010 compatible to ESA2010/SNA2008 rules and shows the results at a macro level. The ISUT describes, for each product and industry, all intra- and interregional flows caused by the intermediate use, final consumption expenditures, investments and exports of the three Belgian regions Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia.
