In his annual report  of the Ostend economy, professor and planner (RUG) Georges Allaert of the Ghent University (RUG)  doesn't present a very rosy picture of the port of Ostend. 

Allaert concludes that Ostend has also a very small economic base with too few big companies (barely 25, against 20 in 2004). However, the companies with a place of business in Ostend, are a blessing to the local economy. They often have a leading position in  their sector in Belgium (e.g. Daikin or Jetair), but they also score very well regarding employment. Between 2000 and 2010, the 10 largest companies created as much as  1.233 new jobs  (on a total amount of 3.445) or an increase of more than fifty percent since the beginning of the new  millennium. Allaert praises newcomers like Groep Sleuyter (that became an Oscar for increase sales) or Electrawinds.
