Economy and Infrastructure
Agriculture only plays a minor role in Warnécourt. Since the end of the 20th century, the community has become a preferred place of residence for families from the nearby city of Charleville-Mézières . Many residents are therefore commuters. The D3 road runs through the commune from Charleville-Mézières to Launois-sur-Vence . The RN 51 , a motorway-like structure, runs along the northern municipal boundary and is to lead from Reims via Rocroi on the Belgian border to Charleroi in Belgium .
