Luxembourg's stable and high-income economy makes it a global center for professionals from all over the world.

Organizations everywhere are embracing global mobility now more than ever. They are sending an increasing number of people abroad, in a wider variety of roles, to respond to opportunities in global production, to promote research and development, to drive innovation, and improve customer sales, service, and growth.
