About the BLRB Chamber of Commerce

The Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce for Russia and Belarus (BLRB Chamber of Commerce)
is a unique structure that helps Belgian and Luxembourg companies doing business in Russia and Belarus. 

The Belgian- Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce for Russia and Belarus (BLRB Chamber of Commerce) was established in 1974 by the management of the Belgian Office of Foreign Trade as the responsible branch of the Belgian Association for Exportation and Cooperation (in French: ABEC. It was grouping the associations acting with the centralized economies of Eastern Europe).

 

The Chamber was first created under the denomination “Economical Committee for the Belgian-Luxemburg cooperation with USSR”. In 1992 it became the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce for Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, and developed more activities with information letters to members, receiving official business missions from Russia and Belarus.

From 1994 the Chamber has developed regular activities with monthly newsletter to members, and the organization of several official trade missions from/to Russia and Belarus, seminars and conferences. In 1996, the Management Committee was much enlarged and in 1999 the Chamber became a vzw-asbl, concentrating endeavours on Russia and Belarus.

On 15 October 2013 our team has initiated creation of the Partner office in Moscow - the Belgian- Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Russia (CCBLR Moscow). Two independent entities (our Chamber - CCBLR Brussels and CCBLR Moscow) cooperate in frame of the cooperation agreement.

CCBLR Brussels succeeded after deep analyze in getting the status of accredited member of the "Belgian Chambers" Federation and the Chamber of Commerce of Luxembourg.

In 2019, our Chamber has celebrated its 45th anniversary. 

In 2020, the CCBLR Brussels is changing and becomes BLRB Chamber of commerce! From February 2020, we will have a new website www.blrb.org to accompany our brand new logo – modern and clear to reflect the dynamism of our work. On our website, you can fin our news our activities, from our partners and members but also news and analyses from Russia and Belarus. We want to create a real exchange with our members with a part dedicated to their success stories and business proposals.
