Brussels Invest & Export, Building new perspectives
Brussels Invest & Export is the foreign trade and foreign investments service of the Ministry of the Brussels-Capital Region.
Officially launched on 30 May 2011, it brings together the capabilities to attract foreign investment to Brussels which were previously the responsibility of "Invest in Brussels" and the capabilities to promote Brussels exports who were previously the responsibility of "Brussels Export".
Our export services
In Brussels, our teams of sector managers and advisors devote their expertise to export projects relating to Brussels goods and services. They help companies to find commercial, legal and regulatory information and provide them with information about the possibility of obtaining funding for the costs of their international dealings.
Abroad, we have a network of almost 90 economic and commercial attachés on every continent. They are genuine intermediaries working on the ground on behalf of Brussels companies.
Local teams and attachés posted abroad combine forces to carry out around a hundred promotional events relating to Brussels exports every year, both in Belgium and worldwide.
Attracting foreign investments
Our economic and commercial attachés and consultants canvass foreign companies interested in setting up in Europe. They create interest in Brussels as a strategic base for their activities relating to all European countries.
To help these foreign companies evaluate the suitability of setting up in the Brussels region, we offer them a "Welcome package" which includes an equipped workspace for a 3-month trial period combined with tailored support.
Our network of partners
In Brussels, Belgium and abroad, our work is supported by a vast network of public and private partners in order to create synergies with a view to boosting the regional economy.
