- The OECD’s latest Economic Survey of Belgium, to be published on Wednesday 4 February 2015, assesses the country’s recent performance as well as continuing efforts to improve the fragile recovery and put the economy back onto a sustainable long-term path. The Survey discusses reforms that can help Belgium secure fiscal sustainability while promoting employment and competitiveness. It also analyses efforts to boost labour market integration, particularly for vulnerable groups like immigrants, and maintain an efficient and equitable housing market.
