    Ben de Smit, comments “We are delighted to have the support of so many influential business groups for our East of England seminars, highlighting the importance of these initiatives to the business community in this region. Belgium boasts a uniquely central location at the crossroads of European Trade and in this current economic climate there is a need for organisations to look for new businesses opportunities beyond UK shores and we will be demonstrating how Belgium can help them do this.”

    Chris Parkhouse, Managing Director of Deyton Bell adds “I am delighted that so many key business groups are supporting this important initiative, which offers valuable information and key contacts to firms across the region”

    Chris Kubicki, remarks: “Over recent years the focus of International Trade promotion has centred on developing markets notably China, India and Brazil. Our Trading Partners, particularly those in Northern Europe, have barely been mentioned yet they remain among the strongest, far exceeding returns from the “new” markets. Benelux and other European markets have proved to be less volatile and continue to provide solid demand in difficult trading periods. Faced with the current situation in the world’s economy, it is essential that export resources be directed most effectively at those markets where risks are low and the sales & marketing process can be fully supported. Northern Europe fits these criteria perfectly and now is the right time to revisit these important markets.”
