Why invest in Limburg?

Linguistic Limburg

We Speak Your Language

Limburg’s labor force is multilingual by nature. We have the world’s languages at our doorstep. Within just a few minutes, you’ll find yourself in the midst of Dutch-Flemish, Francophone, German, or Anglophone Europe. And we speak it all.

Maastricht University’s student body is home to 107 nationalities—and many more cultures! One third of its staff—and 40% of its student body—comes from abroad.

Multilingual labour force: allowing you to operate globally
Limburg's population is multicultural: 45 nationalities, approximately 5% of the total German and Belgium natives make up the majority of foreigners working in Limburg. The multicultural population has proven to be of significant advantage to companies operating in the global economy. The majority of migrant workers are highly educated knowledge workers.

Around 80 thousand people who work in the Netherlands travel from Belgium and Germany. The main places are Maastricht, Enschede, Venlo, Sittard-Geleen and Eindhoven.
