  • David Vivet

    (National Bank of Belgium)


The article looks at the financial situation of non-financial corporations in Belgium over the period from 1 January to 31 December 2011. After briefly describing the methodology and the population studied, it presents an extrapolation of the main operating result items for 2011. It then goes on to assess the financial situation of companies as regards profitability and solvency. The article also breaks down the sectoral contributions to value added growth in each of the country’s three Regions. The last section presents an analysis of companies’ inventories.
