BRUSSELS Invest & Export is the foreign trade and investment agency of the Brussels-Capital Region. It aims to promote the internationalization of the Brussels economy. Brussels is not only the Belgian and European capital, home of NATO and EU headquarters, but it is also a large business centre at the heart of the European market. BRUSSELS Invest & Export assists Brussels' companies operating in foreign markets. Almost ninety economic and trade commissioners across all continents provide free guidance to SMEs, target potential local prospects and partners, organise matchmaking events... Concrete initiatives in Brussels and abroad include trade missions, contact days, invitations of decision makers and collective stands at international trade fairs. Brussels' exporters are listed in a database, www.brusselsexporters.be, which can be accessed by all foreign companies searching for partners. Another mission of BRUSSELS Invest & Export is to attract foreign companies to Brussels and to provide them with support, should they decide to locate their business in the Region. To enable investors to assess the benefits of establishing in the capital, BRUSSELS Invest & Export offers them a « Welcome Package » which includes equipped office space at no cost for a three-month period. To support the above mentioned activities, Brussels Invest & Export has developed a trade counseling service to help companies individually with their internationalization process as well as a competitive and economic watch service to monitor and inform on international trends and opportunities.
