Economic diplomacy


Economic diplomacy is one of the basic missions of the FPS Foreign Affairs, which – operating within the current constitutional framework and taking account of the other stakeholders in the field – strives to promote Belgian economic interests abroad. It does this in a number of ways. For example, the FPS Foreign Affairs supports Belgian businesses in their international activities, with e.g. the economic missions of the Crown Prince and, increasingly, visits by the King provide substantial support to Belgian economic interests abroad.

We also promote Belgium internationally as a good place to do business. By actively participating in international forums such as the World Economic Forum, arranging bilateral visits and taking multilateral action in international organisations, the FPS Foreign Affairs aims to showcase the Belgian economy.


We are currently working on the renewal of our website.

This will only take a few minutes of your time. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
