List of Ministers for the Economy and Foreign Trade of Luxembourg
The Minister for the Economy and Foreign Trade (French: Ministre de l'Économie et du Commerce extérieur) is a position in the Luxembourgian cabinet, either by itself or combined with other positions, since 15 July 1964.
From 15 July 1964 until 6 February 1969, it was known as the Minister for the National Economy and Energy (French: Ministre de l'Économie nationale et de l’Énergie). In 1969, the Energy brief was separated and recombined with that of the Minister for Transport, leaving the Economy brief to amalgamate with others to create the post of Minister for the National Economy, Middle Class, and Tourism (French: Ministre de l'Économie nationale, des Classes moyennes et du Tourisme). Tourism was separated from 16 September 1977, creating the Minister for the National Economy and the Middle Class (French: Ministre de l'Économie nationale et des Classes moyennes). The position of Minister for the Economy (French: Ministre de l'Économie) was created on 14 July 1989, as it remained since, despite the role's absorption of other responsibilities. In 2009, it was renamed to the current 'Minister for the Economy and Foreign Trade'.
