BELGIUM IN A NUTSHELL

Located in the heart of Western Europe, Belgium enjoys a key position in the European and international economy. Home to many international organisations, Belgium has always been a prosperous marketplace, in business with countries from all over the world. Even though Belgium has a fairly recent history (founded in 1830), its colourful past and location at the crossroads of different cultures has shaped the cosmopolitan character it has today. Consisting of three regions (Brussels-Capital, Flanders and Wallonia) and three language groups (Dutch, French and German), Belgium is home to a versatile population with high purchasing power. Although small in size, Belgium has plenty to offer businesses, no matter where they come from in the world. Let’s take a quick look at why Belgium is such a great place to invest.

Focus on Belgium

As indicated in the baseline ‘people, stories, facts and figures’, the site Focus on Belgium is meant to highlight our country’s strengths in numerous areas, e.g. our creativity, diversity, new talents and established values, developments and possibilities.

To achieve this, not only the articles – forming the main part of the site – but also a variety of events and well-known Belgians are brought to the visitor’s attention. Besides, all kinds of petty facts about Belgium or about Belgian achievements can be found under the heading  ‘did you know?’. Finally, the website contains statistical information about Belgium, a photo gallery as well as a film section.

The 'Focus on Belgium' website is part of the FPS Foreign Affairs’ strategy to further develop its public diplomacy. It is meant to support our Embassies and Consulates abroad in their promotion of Belgium, as well as to inform the general public on what’s happening in Belgium and what our country has to offer in several respects. On this trilingual website (in Dutch, French and English), new items will be published every week, which can also be shared via social media.

This website is used by the FPS FA for drawing up a 'Focus on Belgium newsletter' our missions abroad can use in their communication.

All institutions, organisations and persons who have news or information that could be suitable for Focus on Belgium, can contribute to the site by sending a text, photographs and/or pictures to focusonbelgium@diplobel.fed.be
