A Belgian Business Delegation visits BOI to forge bilateral and business ties with Mauritius
H.E. Paul Cartier, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Belgium with residence in Tanzania and accredited to the EAC bloc in collaboration with the “Agence Wallonne à l'Exportation et aux Investissements Etrangers” (AWEX) represented by M. Dominique Delattre and Mr. Jean-Pierre Muller, is currently leading a business delegation of 12 Belgian companies to Mauritius from 4th to 7th March 2017. The delegation comprises around 15 businessmen and investors from various sectors, namely Construction & Environment, Manufacturing, Energy, Biotech and Healthcare, amongst others.
In this context, the Board of Investment organised a business meeting with the Belgian delegation on Tuesday 7th March and facilitated some thirty B2B meetings between the Belgian companies and local operators. In light of the strong interest for business exchanges between the countries, H.E. Paul Cartier announced the creation of a Belgian Business Association in Mauritius to further promote business linkages between the two countries.
The Belgian business mission to Mauritius follows the presentation made by the BOI Paris Office with the members of AWEX in January 2017. The list of Belgian companies can be accessed here.
