Belgium Invests in Ai
As one of the founding countries of the European Union, Belgium is a country with a high-income economy. However, Belgium was badly hit by the global economic crisis of 2008. The economy has been slowly coming back the last few years with a gradual recovery.
One of the barriers to economic recovery has been Belgium’s highly externally dependent economy. Beligum is subject to the economic events of their trade partners. Drawing more foreign capital funding and investment within the country has always been one of the main focuses of the Belgian government.
With the worldwide rapid development of the Ai industry, Belgium’s government has found a path for their economy.
