Due to its central position in Europe, Belgium attracted many aviation players, making this sector an important driving force and source of employment for the Belgian economy.
Aviation was hit hardest by the consequences of the coronavirus crisis and is also faced with sustainability challenges. This sector is thus changing dramatically and all the links of its value chain need to be supported.
Belgium is playing a pioneering role in technologies and materials at the service of aircraft construction. This unique know-how must be protected and further developed, particularly for the ecological transition of the aviation sector. Finally, the aviation strategy also covers the aerospace sector, which has great added value.
