CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
BELGIUM LUXEMBOURG NIGERIA
The Belgium – Luxembourg - Nigeria Chamber of Commerce (BLNCC) with her Headquarters in Brussels is an international organization of business and professional persons committed to fostering business relations between three focal economies: Belgium, Luxembourg and Nigeria.
Established on 27 June 1985, in Antwerp, Belgium, the association flourished throughout the eighties and the first half of the nineties before going into a period of inactivity.
It was resuscitated in October 2013 under the facilitation of the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in Brussels, in the wake of the first Nigeria Belgium Luxembourg Business Forum. Aimed at creating a sustainable platform for promoting Nigeria-Belgium economic and trade relations, the newly resuscitated chamber of Commerce came into force at the board meeting of 17 December, 2013 under the chairmanship of Mr Pierre Vanderbeeck.
In 2016, the BNCC went through a major overhaul, attracting key industry players and extending its operations to include activities in Luxembourg as well as taking steps to join the folds of the Federation of Belgian Chambers of Commerce.
This evolution continues in 2017 under the leadership of Mr Sergio Canini as Chairman, repositioning the organisation to become a veritable forum for contact and communication among decision makers, opinion leaders and participants in Nigeria, Luxembourg and Belgium.
