Belgians most productive EU workforce

Statistics published by the Conference Board and OECD show that Belgium has the highest productivity per working hour within the European Union.


Based on a reference index with US productivity per hour as 100, Belgium scored 112 compared with an average European Union score of 91.6.

A slight fall, however, has meant that Belgium has slipped from first to second place in the whole of Europe, with Norway (not a member of the EU) taking over the top ranking.
