About us

Building in Rio
Welcome to the website of the Economic and Commercial Representative Office of the Brussels-Capital Region in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).
Our offices are located in the Consulate General of Belgium in Rio.
Our mission is to support Brussels-based companies looking at doing business in Brazil and Brazilian companies wishing to source products and services or looking at establishing operations in Brussels.

In Belgium, foreign trade and investments are a regional matter

Belgium is composed of 3 Regions (the Flemish Region, the Walloon Region and the Brussels-Capital Region) and each of them exercises its full powers and competencies in the area of international trade. That is why each Region has its own agency, responsible for the support of export activities and the attraction of foreign investments:
  • The Brussels-Capital Region : Brussels Invest & Export
  • Wallonia: Wallonia export and foreign investments agency (AWEX)
  • Flanders: Flanders Investment & Trade (FIT)


The Regions have an extended network of economic and commercial attachés, based all over the world and working in close cooperation with the Belgian diplomatic missions. 

Our Office in Rio de Janeiro represents the Brussels-Capital Region for trade and invest matters and the Walloon Region for trade matters only.
