GRE Liège

As the dominant player in the economic redeployment of Liège, the GRE came into being in 2004, following the bombshell announcement of the end of the steel industry, essential to an economic area. Fuelled by a desire to generate sustainable jobs within a region with many advantages, today it brings together the driving forces of the greater region of Liège, from the worlds of industry, education, logistics, culture and others: all sectors which are necessary to the economic life of a region. If the economic crisis of 2009 pushed the GRE to renew its strategic vision for the development of Liege, the impetus provided by the Liege Expo 2017 project underpins a policy of territorial intelligence and an intelligent Metropole.
