Un environnement économique favorable est crucial pour stimuler la productivité en Belgique et l’inclusivité, et est le principal moteur de la prospérité économique à long terme. Ce document analyse l’impact de l’environnement économique sur la performance de productivité. La gestion des innovations, la diffusion technologique, l’investissement des secteurs privé et public ainsi que les politiques de concurrence et de régulation ont tous un impact sur la croissance de la productivité.
