With a strong SME market, the Port of Ghent, solid expertise in biotech and the presence of Ghent University, the region also has a number of major attributes.
The province of East-Flanders is brimming with innovation and enterprising spirit, with a string of successful businesses lining the E17, E40 and N49, and technology companies and start-ups springing up like mushrooms after the rain.
