Creative industries ecosystem

With over 2,400 companies and an estimated workforce approaching 15,000, the creative industries are a dynamic part of Luxembourg’s economy.

A creative economy with deep roots

Creativity has always been central to Luxembourg’s economic development. The roots of the creative industries can be traced back to the creation of Radio Luxembourg – today media giant RTL Group – in the 1920s and the launch of media and communications venture SES, the world's only multi-orbit satellite player, in 1985. Film production is a major business here, and since the 1990s, co-productions with foreign companies have regularly attracted film stars to the country for shootings of international blockbusters.
