Voka - Friends of Flanders 2022

Voka - Flanders’ Chambers of Commerce and Industry, invites you to an exclusive networking event: Friends of Flanders, on June 13, 2022.

Flanders is one of the most open economies in the world. Not only are Flemish businesses active worldwide, Flanders also harbours many international companies. We celebrate this openness each year at ‘Friends of Flanders’, by connecting high-level expats with business executives of international companies in Flanders.

This year, we are proud to welcome Ms. Julie Bynens, Secretary General of Flanders Chancellery and Foreign Office as keynote speaker. She will talk about the importance of maintaining strong international relations and how this is being realized in Flanders, by building up a robust and assertive foreign affairs department with several diplomatic postings spread throughout the European Union.

We hope you can join us for this exclusive event in an international context.
