  • Newsletter Summer 2016 Press Release 03/08/16

    As the latest international benchmarks signal Luxembourg's steady improvement as an attractive and competitive business environment, in areas ranging from expatriate costs to logistics and network readiness, innovative and ambitious technology firms continue to be attracted to the grand duchy. In July Luxembourg's parliament took another significant step to encourage the development of innovative businesses by enacting a corporate law reform creating the so-called 'one-euro company', a structure that entrepreneurs can establish quickly and inexpensively, with a minimum of formalities.

    Capacity for data management, storage and security services has also taken a fresh stride, with LuxConnect opening a new facility, its third in the grand duchy, reflecting growing demand for data hosting offering the highest levels of reliability.

    The country's R&D institutions are playing an increasing role in international research efforts, with the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology collaborating with MIT on ground-breaking development of advanced coatings materials.

    The stronger focus on innovation as the driver of the Luxembourg economy recently has prompted a reorganization and rebranding of the government's economic promotion efforts. The Luxembourg Trade and Investment Offices worldwide will henceforth work closely with Luxinnovation, the national agency for the promotion of innovation, under its new brand of Luxembourg for Business and Innovation.

    Finally, after an enjoyable and fulfilling assignment of almost seven years at the LTIO in San Francisco, this will be the last newsletter I have the privilege to send you. As of September 1, I will retire to Luxembourg where I look forward to new opportunities. I would like to thank my team at LTIO-SF and all those who I have worked with over the past years.
