Welcome to Belgium
The presence of the EU and other international institutions, plus a large number of multinational companies and NGOs, has made Belgium a popular place to live and work. The documentary series made by TV5 Monde on the ‘Capital of Europe’ clearly illustrates this.
Today we invite you to discover a side of a city that is more than just the capital of a State: Brussels . It’s the capital of Belgium, capital of Flanders and the Brussels-Capital Region but especially it’s the capital of Europe.
Due to its geographic positioning, and its cultural and economic resources, it is the real hub of Europe. Thanks to the presence of the European institutions and many other international organizations, more and more expatriates have decided to settle in Brussels and they form a sizeable cosmopolitan community. But what makes Brussels so attractive to these expatriates – or as we call them in Brussels – “Expats”?
BNP Paribas Fortis is the first bank in Belgium to enable you, as a soon-to-be expatriate resident in the country, to become a customer within 15 just minutes via our website. This means that your accounts, bank cards, rental guarantee and insurance cover will all be arranged in advance and ready for you the day you arrive in Belgium.
BNP Paribas Fortis is one of AER’s private partners dating back to 2014. They will sponsor the conference “Investing in the future: new perspectives for the regions” on 30 November and 1 December in Brussels.
