Living in Luxembourg: since 1994

Over 25 ago, Luxembourg was on the cusp of an economic transformation process. “Since that time, we have seen Luxembourg propel into a very modern and dynamic country. It has evolved into a fantastic place to live,” says John Parkhouse.

Today, the economy is thriving. “There is huge growth and dynamism in areas such as healthcare, digital, fintech and smart factories as well as the space sector. A great number of companies have come to Luxembourg with the view to expanding their operations into space.”

Dynamic, energetic, very young, but most of all multicultural. Luxembourg is a country which really welcomes foreigners.

According to Mr Parkhouse, the country is full of assets. “Nobody grows up dreaming of coming to and living in Luxembourg. But when you experience it, it is an amazing place to live, work and raise a family. Dynamic, energetic, very young, but most of all multicultural. Luxembourg is a country which really welcomes foreigners.”
