An international and multicultural labour market

Almost half of Luxembourg’s population is made up of foreigners originating from more than 170 nationalities, and speaking no less than 80 languages. Like its population, Luxembourg’s labour market is highly international and multilingual. While the country has three officially recognised languages (Luxembourgish, French and German), English is widely spoken. Numerous multinational companies have decided to install their worldwide or European headquarters in Luxembourg alongside local well-known companies and research institutes.
