No. 4 in a 67-part series: Belgium – a monopoly from the start
In 2000 Metro Belgium was launched, probably the first free daily with different (Dutch and French) language editions.
The paper is now published by Mass Transit Media, owned by publisher Concentra (Belang van Limburg). It cooperates with Metro International on sales.
Until 2008 circulation increased from 150,000 to more than 250,000 – in 2014 200,000 copies are distributed. In Belgium Metro has a market share of 15%.
