What should we know about Beluxcham?
BV: Beluxcham was founded in 2003, so it will be 20 years next year. In a very short time, we have doubled the number of members to 65, but more importantly, we now have more small and large companies, where in the past, mainly individuals were members. So the Chamber is evolving quickly.
Beluxcham is also a founding member of the inter-Asian chamber network, which currently has 14 Belgian-Luxembourg chambers in Asia, which work well together. We also work closely with our sister organisation in Brussels, the Belgian Vietnamese Alliance (BVA), so that we can offer (potential) members solutions from A to Z, from Belgium, Luxembourg, Europe to Vietnam and vice versa.
Be aware there is also a unique cooperation with the Belgian customs attaché in Jakarta (Indonesia), who is also responsible for Vietnam. This is of golden value, especially with the EVFTA.
The Chamber has 9 dedicated board members and 1 paid office employee. Each board member looks after 5 to 15 members. The board members serve as the first point of contact and ensure that we get input on what the members really find important
