The Google data centre in St. Ghislain-Mons, Belgium, generates significant economic effects as well as long-lasting benefits for the Belgian economy. To date, the data centre has supported economic activity corresponding to EUR 110 million in the gross domestic product (GDP) and 1,500 full-time equivalent jobs per year on average. This equates to EUR 900 million in total over the period so far.
Today, Partner and expert in Digital Economy, Martin Hvidt Thelle, presents the results of our study of the economic impact on Belgium of Google’s data centre.
Other speakers include Belgian Deputy Prime Minister (and Digital Agenda Minister) De Croo, as well as Mons mayor (and former Prime minister) Di Rupo and several other distinguished speakers and participants.
