On 10 September a delegation from the Basque Agency Trade and Invest (BTI) visited Flanders. The delegation led by director Ainhoa Ordanzabal met two Flemish organizations: the Flemish Agency for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO) and Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT).
The organisations exchanged information on how they organize export promotion, including services to companies, structure of the organization and budgets. The way in which FIT and VLAIO work together with companies in Flanders could count on special attention from the Basque delegation.
This visit has been made possible by the Letter of Intent that the Flemish and Basque Government signed on 1 June 2015 to broaden and strengthen cooperation between the two regions.
