Your international partner in the heart of Europe

Located in the heart of Europe, Wallonia (part of the Kingdom of Belgium), is a high potential and strategic region for business located at 55 kilometers of the capital, Brussels. Especially in the agri-food area, the largest industrial sector of the country has build-up a strong innovative ecosystem which stimulates growth in export and turnover as well as investment and attraction of foreign investors.
