Belgian Economic Mission to the UK – London Oxford
The Belgian Economic Missions are co-organised by the Belgian Foreign Trade Agency together with the three regional institutions in charge of foreign trade: Wallonia Export-Investment Agency (AWEX), Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT), hub.brussels and the Federal Public Service (FPS) Foreign Affairs.
They are presided over by HRH Princess Astrid, Representative of His Majesty the King. The Federal and Regional Ministers competent for Foreign Trade usually represent their respective governments on these missions. Senior officials from various Belgian administrations also participate.
On average, two such missions are organized every year. They attract a large number of participants from the public and private sectors (companies, federations, universities, etc.). Numbers vary between 200 and 600.
The aim of these missions is to promote Belgian foreign trade. They also contribute to enhancing economic ties and collaborations between Belgian and overseas partners.
