Brussels – the ideal test market

“Brussels is the ideal test market, because of its internationalization, as proved by Coca-Cola and H&M” Johan Casaer, Consul of Belgium in Toronto at the 2nd Business with Belgium Trade & Investment Seminar featuring the Brussels region.

On May 1, we heard from from prominent speakers from Brussels Invest & Export – Vancouver, the City of Toronto, Baker & McKenzie LLP, and Deloitte about the similarities Brussels & Toronto have; and how Belgium has similar tax jurisdictions to the British Virgin Islands, Cyprus, Ireland, and Luxembourg but without the negative media.
