Maastricht is an international city known for much more than the Maastricht Treaty and the euro: 25% of its 122,000 residents are of foreign descent. A significant proportion of these are knowledge migrants, students, and expats employed at or affiliated with the university and the many (European) institutions and internationally oriented companies that the city and region have to offer.
The city’s 7000 businesses employ over 73,000 people in a predominantly knowledge-based and service-oriented economy. Located in the heart of the Euregion, with the cities of Aachen, Liège and Hasselt a stone’s throw away, Maastricht distinguishes itself by offering a pleasant place to live, work and visit. Maastricht is also a city of great ambition and is currently striving to become the 2018 Cultural Capital of Europe, with the welcome support of several Euregion cities
For the past few decades, Maastricht has pursued a policy of innovative urban renewal. Like a chameleon, we have adapted to the demands of the modern era while preserving the unique character and beauty of our city and the surrounding areas. Maastricht plans to further enhance its appeal in the years to come by investing €1.3 billion in:
- implementing large-scale infrastructure projects, including the construction of a tunnel under the A2 and improvements to the Meuse traffic intersection and the LRT connection with Hasselt
- strengthening the economic vitality, innovative capacity and knowledge economy (Maastricht Health Campus, Brainport 2020, United World College);
- redeveloping existing business sites (new quays and trimodal access will be added to the Beatrixhaven)
- transforming the existing urban area by improving the residential environment including the addition of 2 new city parks
Despite these turbulent economic times, Maastricht has chosen to invest heavily in the quality of its city. Maastricht invites entrepreneurs and investors to discuss how we can continue to enhance the quality of our city.Warning: No images in specified directory. Please check the directoy!
