About Brussels Economy and Employment
- To develop the economy
We encourage sustainable economic development, taking into account the specific nature of the Brussels economy.
To support employment
We support those creating employment in the Brussels-Capital Region.
Support measures and protection
Brussels Economy and Employment offers services to the self-employed, entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial candidates and workers : grants, financing for calls for projects, financing for certified businesses, training support (paid educational leave, training fund for service voucher companies), food analyses, etc.
Brussels Econonmy also monitors the labour market and strives for consumer protection and fair competition. As a consequence, entrepreneurial candidates must prove their management knowledge and their professional skills through our central jury examinations.
Businesses also have to apply for authorisations with Brussels Economy and Employment : employment authorisations to employ a non-European national or to start a travel agency, certifications for temporary employment agencies and service voucher companies, registration of touristic accomodation, etc.
We also provide an inspection policy.
The administration consists of around 250 staff. It is made up of 3 departments: the Economy department, the Employment department and the Coordination and Finances Directorate for the cross-cutting aspects (HR, legal issues, etc.).
