Why trade with or invest in Belgium?
Belgium has a globalized open economy where more than 80% of gross domestic product is exported. It is the logistical heart of western Europe and historically a crossroad of Roman and German culture. The regional differences in Belgium make it an ideal market for testing and launching innovative products in Europe.
Thanks to Belgium’s open and European-oriented economy, the dynamics of the local Belgian market are very instructive about wider European market developments. Belgium has a heavily services-oriented market. Strong performing areas include logistics, chemicals, renewable energy and technology.
Belgium's most important import and export partners are its neighbors: the Netherlands, Germany and France. The A-Law team has expertise in these neighboring markets, enabling a comparative and holistic analysis of relevant legal and business environments. A-Law can effectively connect clients to relevant Belgian and neighboring regional representatives, to maximize your market penetration.
Unique elements of Belgian law and the Belgian legal system
Belgium is a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, divided into multiple regions and communities, at the heart of the European Union. This means that legal issues can have a federal, regional and European dimension. Areas covered by Belgian federal law include distribution rights, licensing, tax, debt recovery and dispute resolution.
Belgium boasts dynamic and flexible entrepreneur investment schemes, that offer Belgian immigration opportunities to successful entrepreneurs who have created regional economic benefits.
