“On January 1, 2010, Belgium had 1.057.666 inhabitants with a non-Belgian nationality, not counting the waiting list. One in ten people in our country is not Belgian. In the age of 30 to 34 years that figure rises to one in six.”

“The milestone of one million foreigners in Belgium at the end of 2008 is already exceeded. Italians were most numerous (169.027), followed by French (130.568), Dutch (123.454), Moroccans (79.867), Spanish (42.712), Turks (39.954), Germans (38.370) and Polish (30.768).”
