Where is Lille?
Lille is one of the northern-most cities in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France, lying close to the border with Belgium. Lille is conveniently located in the centre of the triangle connecting London, Paris, and Brussels. The city is one-and-a-half hours by car from Brussels, two hours from Paris, and three-and-a-half hours from London. Use the A22 motorway for the Belgian border, Ghent, and Brussels.
Follow the A25 to Dunkerque and Calais to catch a ferry to England. The A1 runs south from Lille straight to Paris. French is spoken in Lille, but English is widely understood. All payments are made in euros only, and most cards are accepted.
Invest in Lille
Lille is proud of its dynamic business environment and the large number of headquarters of leading companies located here. The presence of renowned commercial giants creates a flourishing entrepreneurial atmosphere that small and mid-sized companies can benefit from. The Lille region attracts a lot of foreign investment and has the third-largest financial market in France, with the insurance sector being the most prominent.
Historically, Lille has a well-developed textile industry, and therefore it has been a logical starting point for French mass retailing. CETI, the European Centre for Innovative Textiles, is located here. Another important source of export revenue for Lille is the automotive industry. The FEAL, Forum on European Automotive Industry in Lille, is a regular meeting point for all the international heavyweights in the automotive industry for conferences, networking, and workshops, where the present and future challenges of the industry are addressed.
Foreign enterprise and investment forms nearly half of Lille’s wealth. Since Brexit, Lille has offered a balanced solution for UK entrepreneurs who look for a convenient place to set up their import-export business and trade with the EU. Thanks to available warehouse and office space at affordable prices and a convenient location, Lille is now home to over 97,000 small and medium enterprises, and more international companies continue to move in.
