Brussels, here Magnificence, Culture, and Cleverness assemble together

Brussels is located in central Belgium and is the country’s constitutional capital city. Over 2.5 million people inhabit the metropolitan area of Brussels, which spans a total of 161 square kilometers, making it the largest city in Belgium. Belgium is a landlocked country and shares its borders with Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg, with a small area of coastline facing the North Sea.

Brussels is the political capital of Belgium, with the governing system being a constitutional monarchy. It is also the de facto capital city of the European Union, of which it is a founding member. Brussels is divided into 29 sub-districts, each with separate councils to govern more minor issues within each area. It adopted the euro (EUR) as its currency in 1999, replacing the Belgian franc (BEF).

Brussels Economy

Brussels is Belgium’s leading economic and commercial center, with most of its GDP and 88% of all jobs generated by the service sector. The financial sector is booming in Brussels, with numerous prestigious companies choosing to have headquarters within the city, such as Swift and BNP Paribus Fortis. There is an estimated total number of 54,000 businesses in the city, of which only 2,200 are foreign.

The industry also plays a part in the Brussels economy, with 27 purpose-built industrial zones away from the city center but close to transportation links such as the highways or the Brussels canal. Major exports include automobiles (which account for 45% of all total exports from the city) and chemicals, machinery, and electronics. 89% of the total exports are to other European countries, 11% to Asia, Africa, and the Americas.

The Brussels region accounts for 9% of the total exported goods from Belgium. The Belgian economy was affected by COVID-19. For instance, the revenue loss in the tourism industry in Flanders and the Brussels-Capital Region was estimated at 1.7 billion euros in 2020. During that year, the Belgium government balance as a share of GDP decreased by 11 percent, while the GDP per capita went down by 0.4 percent. From a regional perspective, Flander’s GDP is expected to decrease by 11.1 percent in 2020, while the GDP of Wallonia is predicted to fall by 10.3 percent. Source: Statista

Brussels has become a central hub for business trade fairs and exhibitions, partly due to its central European location and many conference facilities available. Brussels has flexible laws regarding testing new medications and has become a center for medical trials.

Brussels Infrastructure

Numerous well-designed and efficient transportation links throughout Brussels make it easily accessible from most other European countries. The area is serviced by Brussels Airport (BRU), located 11km northeast of the city center. Over 26 million people pass through the airport in 2019, making it the 24th busiest airport in Europe.  There is also a large cargo terminal (Brucargo) where 18 airlines transport a combined total of 780,000 tons of freight a year (2020). Low-cost airlines such as Ryan Air and Easy Jet fly to Brussels second, and smaller airports, known as ‘Brussels South Charleroi Airport, located 40km outside the city center.

Brussels Midi train station is the busiest in Belgium, with all Eurostar trains arriving and departing from this station. High-speed trains link to London St.Pancreas and take just 1hour 50min, with up to 10 services a day. Other destinations serviced by Eurostar include Amsterdam and Paris. Germany can also be accessed from Brussels via the high-speed ICE and Thalys train services. A comprehensive public transportation system operates with a metro station, frequent and punctual bus services, and a tram network, making it easy to travel around in Brussels. There is also a network of well-maintained highways linking Brussels to other cities in Belgium and all of its neighboring countries.

Brussels is dedicated to lowering its carbon emissions and developing a more economically friendly city. It has invested in sustainable energy programmers, including off-shore wind turbines.

Brussels Workforce

The workforce in Brussels is highly educated, with over 32% of all employees holding a higher education degree. An estimated 30% of the workforce hold foreign passports, although Belgium does not collect data on the ethnic backgrounds of its inhabitants, so the exact figure is unknown. It is common for a Belgian to be bi-lingual within French and Dutch being the two main languages required by the police force. The English language is taught in secondary schools, and it is used in many businesses as the primary language. In immigrant neighborhoods, foreign languages such as Turkish and Arabic are spoken.

There are several private and public education centers within Brussels, the largest being the French-speaking Université Libre de Bruxelles, attended by over 20,000 students. The government funds several research facilities. Brussels has been scrutinized as having an educational system that discriminates and segregates ethnic minorities.

Despite the structured and efficient education system, in 2020, unemployment increased 3.5% there. By comparison, in the Brussels-Capital Region, the percentage of individuals without a job was about four times as high, at 12.4%. There is a notable divide between the rich and the poor, with immigrants reporting problems finding work, which is mainly put down to language barriers, but discrimination in Belgium may be a contributing factor.

Brussel Business Costs

Belgium’s corporate tax rate is fixed at 25%, with a 3% ‘crises surcharge’ added to that figure, making the total amount 28.99%. Individual tax rates are based on a progressive pay scale ranging from 25% to 50% of total income earned (where the lower tax is set for an annual income between 0 to €13,250). Standard VAT rates are 21%, with discounts available for some essential items. There are several tax exemption rules, including discounts for managers in specific industries and lowered tax rates for those working within research facilities.

Belgium has a minimum wage rate of €1,466 a month for employees ages 23, which is double the minimum wage for countries such as Spain, Malta, and Portugal.

WordPress Maintenance Packages in Brussels – Why Do You Need It?

To keep your WordPress website performing well after its online publication, your website still needs to be managed and technically maintained. It is not prudent to publish your website and walk away thinking “job-done”.

Search engines such as GoogleYahoo!, and Bing are constantly evolving using artificial intelligence and changing their algorithms (the way they evaluate your website) to finely hone their user’s search experience. Therefore, properly managing and technically maintaining a website ensures it stays in tune with changing search engine technology and software environment.

After the publication of your website, I can continue to be the webmaster for your website, providing website technical support and carrying out any website maintenance required.

The WordPress Maintenance and Support in Brussels are renewable monthly or annually, and, depending on your specific case, it can include the renewal of hosting space and domain name, maintaining website security, monitoring website traffic, search engine re-submissions and tracking changes, as well as recovering your website in case of disaster.

Nowadays, many people forget to backup their enterprise website: Maybe the stress of running their business, the lack of knowledge, or any other reasons.

Some of the bad scenarios when you need a site backup:

  • Hacked site recovery – In case you need to recover your business website very fast, and in the same way it was, you need a backup.
  • WordPress updates break your website – It happens. Every time you make a theme or plugin update, make sure you do a backup before. Most people put those updates on “auto” mode, meaning your WordPress site can go down while your potential clients are surfing on it. That isn’t good!
  • Cheap hosting – One of the biggest problems with those cheap hosting providers ($1/month, $5/month, $15/month) with UNLIMITED traffic, UNLIMITED domains, and other misleading offers may disappear after a few weeks you just bought their plan(s). Guess what?! Your website will disappear, too. In order to keep your website online, you need someone (person or software) to take care of it, and take prompt action in case of any problems.

In any case, you need a fresh and well-structured backup of your website. But these WordPress site maintenance services aren’t only about backups. I also provide Security protection for your site and implement the last réglementation in the matter of WordPress security. Your website is in safe hands and your enterprise will continue to prosper.

Why is WordPress website maintenance important?

WordPress is the most successful CMS (*content management system). Due to its heavy use worldwide, however, it is also a popular target for hackers. Similar to an operating system on the computer, WordPress must be updated regularly. Functionalities are expanded and security gaps are closed. Once regularly updated, WordPress is stable and secure. However, WordPress installations that are rarely updated or not updated at all are vulnerable and run the risk of being infected by malicious code.

I take care of all the necessary details to make your WordPress website more secure and regularly update the WordPress core system and all plugins used. In the first step, I carry out a basic check of your WordPress website. I check the WordPress core data, plugins, and themes used. I check the performance and carry out the first security checks. Your system is checked for security gaps and for viruses, malware, or Trojans. I am interested in the general condition of your website and the associated immunity of the system. As soon as the basis is right, all further work follows.

I keep your WordPress website up to date with regular updates

For the operation of a professional WordPress website, it is necessary to ensure regular updates of the system and the installed plugins and themes. Regular updates are the basic work for a safe and stable WordPress website. I carry out these essential tasks and constantly stabilize the immune system of your website. At the same time, we check the compatibility of the individual plugins and the functionality of the entire website after each update.

I create backups of your WordPress website

Your website is important to your business and often the focus of many marketing efforts. A successful website puts a lot of time and energy into it. This business area can be temporarily paralyzed by WordPress problems such as incompatible plugins or themes. This is not yet about hacker attacks or other infections. That’s why regular backups are the reinsurance of your website. Thanks to a WordPress backup, we can quickly restore the normal operation of your website in an emergency. I take care of your WordPress security and create regular data backups on external servers and secure your business sustainably.

I check your WordPress website after each update

In addition to the necessary updates to the WordPress core version and the plugins used to keep your website stable and up-to-date, a subsequent check of your website for functionality is mandatory. Since plugins are offered by different developers and companies, incompatibilities can never be ruled out. Especially when using many plugins, the risk increases, and problems can occur. Therefore, a function test of the website after each update should be routine. I offer you this routine and can also carry out an analysis of the plugins you use to determine whether they are necessary.

I do the work for you. You save time and money.

I am your specialized service provider for the care and maintenance of WordPress websites. As a web developer, I’ve been dealing with WordPress for many years (since 2008, more exactly) and have gained extensive experience. Benefit from my knowledge and save time and money and concentrate on your core business. I concentrate on your WordPress website and take care of all technically demanding maintenance work. I keep an eye on all components and carry out major WordPress upgrades, updates, and minor updates to plugins and themes.

I carry out security scans to detect malware and other infections, check the availability of your website (up-time monitoring), and create regular backups. If there are problems with the website, I will inform you in good time and offer solutions at short notice. The maintenance packages include all the important functions to keep your WordPress website stable, secure, and long-term.
