Luxembourg in the Heart of the Greater Region

The Greater Region is located in the heart of Europe, on the road and railroad axis that links the Mediterranean region to the North Sea. It is home to some 11.5 million people (comparable to the population of Belgium or Greece) and spans 65,500km2 of land (about the size of Lithuania).

The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is the only sovereign state of this Greater Region, which includes:

  • Lorraine in France;
  • Saarland and Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany;
  • the Walloon Region and the French and German-speaking communities of Belgium;
  • Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Luxembourg's population only accounts for 4.8% of the total population of this cross-border space, but boasts the most dynamic growth. Also, when it comes to employment, the Grand Duchy can be said to be the powerhouse of the Greater Region.
