About us

About us
Welcome to the website of the Economic and Commercial Representative Offices of the Brussels-Capital Region in the United States of America.
 
Our offices are located in New York and San Francisco.
 
Our mission is to support Brussels-based companies looking at doing business in the U.S and American companies wishing to source products and services or looking at establishing operations in Brussels.

In Belgium, foreign trade and investments are a regional matter

Belgium is composed of 3 Regions (the Flemish Region, the Walloon Region and the Brussels-Capital Region) and each of them exercises its full powers and competencies in the area of international trade. That is why each Region has its own agency, responsible for the support of export activities and the attraction of foreign investments:
 
  • The Brussels-Capital Region : Brussels Invest & Export
  • Wallonia: AWEX (Wallonia export and foreign investments agency)
  • Flanders: FIT (Flanders Investment & Trade)

 

The Regions have an extended network of economic and commercial attachés, based all over the world and working in close cooperation with the Belgian diplomatic missions. 

In certain places, the economic and commercial attaché represents two or three regions. Our offices in New York and San Francisco represent only the Brussels-Capital Region for both our trade and invest missions.
