Belgium top of the productivity league
Another widely used index of productivity is gross domestic product per head. Here too, Belgium performed relatively well in 2001, with the third highest GDP per head in the EU, after Ireland and Denmark.
Impressive though last year’s figures are, they are by no means exceptional for the Belgian economy, however. In fact, Belgium is one of a select group of six countries whose labour productivity growth has been as high as, or higher than, that of the US between 1995 and 2001.
