Export services

In Brussels, a team 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 on foreign markets. In addition, they provide them with information about the financial subsidies available for SMEs to support their international expansion.

Almost 90 economic and commercial attachés all around the world offer free guidance to SMEs, target potential local prospects and partners for them and facilitate their access to local authorities.

Local teams and attachés posted abroad combine forces to carry out around a hundred economic actions a year, both in Belgium and abroad: trade missions, contact days, purchasers’ invitations and collective stands at international trade fairs.

Brussels' exporters are listed in a database:, which can be accessed by all foreign companies searching for partners
