Summary

The Belgian social security system covers a large proportion of the country’s population and plays a significant role in its employee benefits landscape. However, the recent debt crisis in the European Union (EU) member states had an adverse impact on the employee benefits market. The Belgian government has had to tackle economic imbalances and rising unemployment over the past few years, and the private benefits market was affected by the sovereign debt crisis. Both the state and private benefits markets in France are undergoing transformation and are expected to improve in the coming years
