Despite enjoying a relatively stronger recovery than several other eurozone Member States, the Belgian economy is nonetheless vulnerable to the lingering crisis in the single currency area.

A particular c oncern is the national debt which, at close to 100% of GDP, leaves Belgium exposed to a deterioration in risk sentiment and slowdown in economic growth.

Although the formation of a new government has ended 18 months of political paralysis, the six-party coalition could yet struggle to overcome ideological differences in order to tackle much-needed fiscal and economic reforms.
