The economic development of the country, that gradually shifted from a rural economy to an industrial one (with the steel industry) and, finally, to a service and financial centre has been, and still is, the main driver of land-use change. Indeed, this development led to a strong population growth alongside an even stronger cross-border commuter growth – see country profile – that led to construction needs (housing, offices, and transportation infrastructure).
