Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, is one of the key references in the field of life sciences, as it occupies a pivotal role for the European and global pharmaceutical industry thanks to a unique ecosystem. The ongoing efforts to improve the business environment in the region have allowed companies to improve their competitiveness through lower costs and easier access to facilities and qualified workforce. This is why the region has been chosen to produce the active substance for the AstraZeneca vaccine against covid-19.
