The special report entitled “Destination: Luxembourg” gives a broad overview of several “hot topics” for Luxembourg’s development and sustainable growth.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy Etienne Schneider talks about the government’s ambitions to shift Luxembourg towards a different type of economic model with the aim to “grow in a very sustainable way, and make sure our growth rates are much more based on productivity growth than on the growth of labour”.
