Specific services

In addition to promoting Belgian interests in the world, which is a key aspect of Foreign Affairs’ core business, providing assistance to those in need of it is one of the main tasks of the FPS.

To ensure the successful performance of these tasks, consultation and coordination with other national and international bodies and institutions is needed.

In a number of cases this interaction has led to the creation of services which – due to their semi-autonomous status or inter-ministerial nature – have their own very specific raison d’être.

Each of them, via their actions, complements the policy the Ministry wants to communicate.
