On Thursday, as part of parent RWS Group, we are in the final of the Golden Bridge Awards, organised by the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain. It promises to be an outstanding occasion and we are up against some fantastic companies. As we move towards the event, it gives us a moment to reflect on all the work undertaken by the Group, in recent years, to develop this important market.
As we look back on a most eventful 2015 we are truly encouraged by the growth of the languages services market.
RWS Group trades in 71 overseas markets. In 2014, 78% of our trading was with companies in the EMEA region. Belgium represents our 5th largest overseas market in 2014.
