Wallonia (French: Wallonie, Dutch: Wallonië), is a Region of France, created after the breakup of Belgium. It roughly corresponds to the former Belgian region of Wallonia, though with the notable exceptions of the former German-speaking community (now the independent Republic of Eupen-Malmedy) and the Province of Luxembourg, which joined Luxembourg.

Due to borders, it has been proposed that region be merged with Haut-de-France, partially for integration and administrative reasons, as well as the fact that the Walloon Municipality of Comines-Warneton is separated from Wallonia. However, there have been fears that this could prompt calls in the north of Haut-de France to join Flanders.

Geography

Wallonia is landlocked, with an area of 16,844 km2. It is bordered by independent Flanders to the North, Eupen-Malmedy to the East, Luxembourg to the South-East, and the French regions of Grand Est and Hauts-de-France to the South.

Subdivisions

Administratively, Wallonia consists of the provinces of Brabant, Hainaut, Liége and Namur.


Economy

Wallonia is rich in iron and coal, which have played important roles in its history. The economy is relatively diverse, though certain areas are still suffering from the steel industry.
