The province of Antwerp is an entrepreneurial region. Our economic prosperity is supported by our companies: large concerns, SMEs and thousands of independent entrepreneurs. They are active in the life sciences and biotech, construction and metal sector, logistics, retail, business services, chemistry, agricultural industry, creative industry, etc. The provincial economic policy is built around and for these spearhead sectors.
Central to the economic policy of the Province of Antwerp is the creation of space and preconditions for both entrepreneurship and the labor market in our economic spearhead sectors. For the life sciences sector, the Science Park University of Antwerp is a prime example.
