The rating of Belgium is the sum of two/three very differnt parts of Belgium namely Flanders Wallonia and Brussels Flanders exports is 80% of the Belgium export and unemplyment is a third of that of Wallonia. Every rating of Belgium must account for this facts

- HI Jobo1111, thank you for your comment - good idea! How could this be considered in a reasonable way for all countries? For example in Germany the Bundesländer are also very different involved in the export amaount, unemployment rate, etc. There are similiar situations in the USA, Spain or Italy. But there are also more centralized countries, like France, Russia or Portugal. If one should want to use this concept, it should respect this different structures. Do you have any idea? Cheers!

- Hi, We also intend to issue regional credit ratings. This would cover your wish. Regards Erwan

- I agree with your principle of analysis but the unemployment is more complicate (19,5 % Brussels, 5 % Flanders and 11 % Wallonia). And, we need a long terms visions, the petrol-chimic and auto industry in Flanders need to retrain, if Flanders does not even know the industrial decline that has seen Walon. Personally, I find that rating agencies are far too reactive as a logic of market exchange. Or state policies unfold over the long term and expect their funding agency a proactive vision.
