Tak se to dělá… v Davosu

Belgium’s federal authorities organised a power breakfast yesterday during the World Economic Forum in Davos. The breakfast – attended by Prince Philippe and Princess Mathilde, as well as about 100 foreign business leaders and investors invited by prime minister Elio Di Rupo – aimed to showcase Belgium’s advantages to foreign investors. In his address, Di Rupo reminded his guests that Belgium’s labour force was the fourth most productive in the world and the most productive in Europe, with workers having a high level of education and training in many fields. He added that Belgian universities and researchers had a well-deserved reputation for excellence and companies enjoyed a business-friendly tax system, which include notional interests, tax-shelter schemes and R&D-friendly tax measures, all measures that support investments and create jobs.
