Belgium: International trade hub

One of Europe’s most important economic centres

Why Belgium?

Brussels, the capital city of Belgium, is the headquarters of the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty organisation (NATO). The country itself - as well as being a member of prominent international trade organisations such as the EU, NATO, World Trade Organisation (WTO) and Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) - is one of the most important centres of economic activity in Europe. Several investment incentives granted by the federal and regional governments - such as financial assistance and grants, investment subsidies and tax breaks, and access to numerous double tax treaties - have resulted in a very business-friendly environment.

Its central location in Europe, the harbours of Antwerp, Gent and Zeebrugge, and its large logistical network make Belgium the perfect place for international trading.
