The Belgium-China Association was founded in 1957, 14 years before the two countries started their official diplomatic relations. The purpose of the Association has always been to promote China in all its aspects to the Belgian people, and vice versa.
The Business Services Department (BSD) of the Belgium-China Association focuses on the development of business links between the two countries and, with the extension of economic zones, we plan to extend our networks to the Benelux and Greater China regions.
The BSD established, through BCA’s network, relationships with Chinese think-thanks and also with various interest groups in a number of sectors at national and regional level. The BCA also provides a large database with recent economic reports and studies on the Greater China area.
Gert Lambrechts is responsible for the Belgium-China Association in Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao and the Chairman of the Guangdong region is Marc De Schutter.
The BSD prepares and assists businessmen from both regions in their contacts and facilitates commercial procedures. The DSC’s staff comes from very diverse fields, which gives us the advantage of covering many industrial sectors. Each of our consultants has at least one master’s degree from a European university and five years of experience as an expatriate in China at the managerial level. Our Chinese accountant (CPA graduate) will also be available by appointment for more technical assistance in finance. Our Chinese employees can also represent you for tasks that require a physical presence in China, such as an audit of a certain production site.
