Asia, your new trade route

Archive 25.04.2019

Eager to take on a new challenge in the Orient? Why not take a look at the opportunities offered by the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)? On 14 May, at the Ellipse Building, Avenue Albert 35, 1030 Brussels, we are unveiling investment projects that may well be of interest to you, in collaboration with FIT and AWEX.

Since January 2016, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has been working to support numerous projects in order to meet major infrastructure needs. These projects are mainly located in Asia. However, they are gradually coming to encompass other regions of the world.

This new Bank now has members on almost every continent, including a large number of European countries.

An economic project awaits you in this booming region

Your industry expertise could contribute to a project applying for funding from this institution! Join us at this seminar, and learn more about its calls for tender and how to participate in economic projects in this growth region. We will be placing a particular focus on Turkey, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan.

With Belgium’s application to join the AIIB in its final phases, now is the perfect time to find out more about its potential role in reinforcing your trade relations with Asia!

Register from today until 9 May, using the online form.
Please note that participation is free but compulsory. The seminar will be conducted in English.
