Luxembourgian politician who was the 15th and 17th Prime Minister of Luxembourg. He first served in this position for eleven years, from 16 July 1926 until 5 November 1937. He returned to the position after World War II, serving for another four years, from 29 December 1953 until 29 March 1958.

Bech is considered to be one of the 'Founding Fathers' of the European Community. He was one of the participants of the Messina Conference in 1955, which would lead to the Treaty of Rome in 1957.

Bech died on 8 March 1975, aged 88, in Luxembourg City. The 1982–1983 academic year at the College of Europe was named in his honour.
