The region is famous for its bucolic countryside, Flemish architecture, and industrious history. You'll be welcomed by the friendly locals, famous for their 'chaleureux', or warmth. There is a local saying that goes, 'the people of the north have in their hearts the sunshine they don't have outdoors'.

London, Paris and Brussels are all less than 90 minutes away by high-speed rail, and it's just a short metro ride to the Belgian border. The city is also serviced by an airport, Lille Lesquin, which you can reach by shuttle in just 20 minutes.

What does France's fourth-largest economy have to offer business travellers?
