DescriptionThe Wallonia Foreign Trade & Investment Office (AWEX) in Barcelona has two main objectives:
1. Export service: we provide business advice and support to Belgian companies from WALLONIA looking for new opportunities in the Spanish Mediterranean corridor (new customers, partnerships, and setting up commercial offices).
2. Investment service: we promote Wallonia-Region of BELGIUM as a good place to establish a local company and give support to Spanish firms willing to invest in our region.

Two other Trade & Investment Offices (AWEX), located in Madrid and Bilbao, develop the same activity covering other Spanish regions. The headquarters of the Wallonia Foreign Trade and Investment Agency are located in Brussels, and provide business services through a large network of trade offices around the world.
