FEDIL meets students

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has a long industrial tradition. The pioneers of the iron and steel industry, which in the years 1900 were the symbol of the country’s wealth, were followed by other important economic sectors from the 1960s onwards. The 1973 oil crisis led to a change in Luxembourg’s industry and, with the expansion of the tertiary sector, promoted the development towards a service economy.

Today Luxembourg is known for being an innovative base for various high-value industrial goods ranging from the steel, glass and plastic industries to the aeronautic and automotive industries. After Germany, the Luxembourg economy registers the highest proportion of innovative companies in the European Union. More than 90% of Luxembourg’s industrial production is exported.

Industrial diversification is one of the permanent objectives of Luxembourg’s economic policy. It favors the development of various other industrial sectors such as ICT, automotive, biohealth, construction, ecoinnovation and space. Choosing a job in Luxembourg’s industry means being part of a vivid and rapidly changing as well as strongly digitized ecosystem full of promising opportunities.
