Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT) promotes international enterprise in Flanders in a sustainable way as a key factor in the social and economic development of our region. FIT does so by supporting the international activities of Flemish companies and by attracting foreign investors to Flanders.
We assist, support and stimulate companies in international business. Flanders Investment & Trade offers tailored advice and guidance. Companies can call on our networks of contacts both at home and abroad. And we give financial support and information on a wide range of financial incentives.
Flanders has many assets for ambitious Flemish enterprises and SMEs as well as for interested international companies.
For Flemish companies, our region is a perfect gateway. For them, we try to lower the threshold to doing business abroad. We promote our services, provide information and knowledge about export and offer networking opportunities between entrepreneurs and bring them into contact with potential partners abroad.
Flanders is a pole of attraction for foreign companies: thanks to its central location in Europe, our strongly developed infrastructure, our innovative clusters and numerous other strengths. We try to give them worldwide publicity. We adopt a tailored approach to potential investors and convince them of the opportunities for their company in Flanders. Furthermore, we focus on existing investors in Flanders planning to expand their businesses.
Innovative clusters are of key importance to Flanders as a knowledge region. We help these clusters in their internationalisation process and try to attract foreign investors capable of strengthening the cluster to grow into a major international player.
