2020, a year like no other, has finally ended and the outcomes are quite uncertain for many of us.

The world had to face an unprecedented situation that saw the downturn the global economy due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but agile and forward-thinking economic actors have quickly learned to adapt in order to minimize and overcome the disastrous consequences of the crisis. This pandemic has catalyzed trends that were already engaged, and has urged societies to accelerate their transformation through digitalization, which has become the priority for many countries.

We are happy to announce the recent release of the first edition of Crossroads Magazine, the new international publication from Luxembourg Trade & Invest. Just like its predecessor “Happen”, the magazine highlights the technological excellence and innovation potential of the Luxembourg economy and its digital readiness The first issue focuses on clean technologies, market trends, and new opportunities in the post COVID-19 economy.
