Expansion of Flanders’ global trade network

  • June 14, 2018

From now on, Flemish exporters can directly consult FIT’s economic experts in Ghana, Uzbekistan and New Zealand. Minister-president Geert Bourgeois announced this expansion during his visit to the Export Fair, a biennial event of Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT) in which more than 1000 Flemish companies participated.

“Flanders guides it’s exporting companies all over the world with a network of more than hundred experts. From the Flemish production hall to the customer abroad. That’s why we invest in a global network and I increased the budget for these advisors abroad with one million euros in 2017. Investing in the reinforcement of this network pays off: it doesn’t matter if the investor is Flemish or foreign, stimulating economic growth in Flanders means creating jobs.”

During his visit, Minister-president Bourgeois also announced the six nominees for the Export Lion 2018 which will be announced in September.
