BIO co-hosts seminar for businesses in Belgium. On Tuesday, 29 May 2012, BIO, FEB (Federation of Enterprises in Belgium), FINEXPO (Inter-ministerial export finance support committee), ONDD (Belgian Export Credit Agency), IFC (International Finance Corporation) and BMI-SBI (Belgian Corporation for International Investment) co-hosted a seminar at the Egmont Palace in Brussels on the theme “Financing and Securing your Growth in Emerging Markets”, with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The aim of the event was to inform businesses in Belgium about the different financing instruments that are available to support their development in emerging economies, where there is a strong growth and potential.

Given the importance of internationalisation to the economy, it is essential that business leaders be informed about fresh challenges in international trade and told how to rise to them. The seminar has brought together key players who can help businesses finance their growth outside the European Union. Two workshops were held during the event, one on Investment Finance and the other on Export Finance, at which the participants were given the opportunity to meet experts and benefit from the experience of other business leaders.

Didier Reynders, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and European Affairs, ended the proceedings with some closing remarks, stressing the importance for businesses in Belgium to seeking new opportunities in untapped markets outside Europe, as well as the need to provide support to those companies to achieve their endeavours.
