Foreign investors interested in starting a business in Luxembourg are invited to explore new possibilities in industries like research and innovation, construction and even the energy industry which now benefit from various incentives offered by the government.
When it comes to the energy sector, Luxembourg offers one of the most modern laws in Europe as the authorities have amended the Energy Law in order to offer investment opportunities for investors, as well as a more efficient energy consumption to Luxembourg’s population.
