Over the past ten years, Luxembourg’s digital economy has experienced unprecedented growth. The aim was clear: starting with infrastructure, to create the most propitious environment for the growth of companies in the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector. Successive Luxembourg governments have made this their leading priority and have acted accordingly. Nowadays, Luxembourg has one of the best digital infrastructures in the world!
Luxembourg’s ranking among the top countries for ICT, the presence of numerous global players in the country as well as many start-ups, the creation of thousands of jobs all point to one conclusion:
ICT is the new vector of economic development of Luxembourg.
But outstanding infrastructure is not enough. The digital transformation affects all aspects of public and private life. Companies and citizens want, and the country must progress further along this path. To that end, it needs leaders who understand the challenges facing companies and citizens on a daily basis, and needs to introduce legislation designed to back their development while providing public services that are adapted to their requirements.
After laying down the foundations and in order to ensure the long-term viability of the changes being made, the government of Luxembourg sought to provide a common umbrella for the numerous public and private initiatives that make up the country’s digital economy and society. Thus, in autumn 2014, the Digital Luxembourg initiative was launched.
All the conditions are thus in place to transform the outlook of the country’s leaders and the aspirations of the players into a day-to-day reality: by developing, by innovating, by creating.
The digital medium is the tool of choice of all those who want to turn Luxembourg into a smart nation, a country where it is good to live.
