Origin and Legal Status

The Walloon Export and Foreign Investment Agency is the body of the Walloon Region of Belgium in charge of promoting foreign trade and attracting foreign investment. Its creation, by the decree of 1st April 2004, results from the merger of the Walloon Export Agency (AWEX) and the Office for foreign Investors (OFI).

The Agency has been certified ISO 2001 : 2000. This amounts to an important undertaking to guarantee a high-quality service, which is regularly reassessed, improved and given concrete form to the benefit of enterprises.

The Agency is a public interest organisation. It is provided with a legal status which allows it, in particular, greater autonomy and more flexibility in terms of management: an important asset in its dealings with enterprises.

Composed of representatives of the Walloon Government, the trade unions and employers’ associations, its Board of Directors is entrusted with an initiating and supervisory role.

A management contract concluded for three years with the Walloon Government lays down the broad objectives of the AWEX. Its implementation is based on a strategic plan that defines the main lines of work and various parameters for evaluating the annual level of achievement.
