Our Mission

The Belgian Chamber of Commerce for Southern Africa (BCCSA) is a bilateral Chamber between Belgium and the Southern African region. The BCCSA is a private, non-profit organization. The BCCSA is covering Southern Africa and has a national entity in South Africa with three Chapters: Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.

The Chamber seeks to promote business relations by being a business platform of excellence for members with a link between Southern Africa and Belgium. With this platform, the BCCSA reunites independent private members and corporations from all sizes with the same interest to network and share opportunities.

The BCCSA helps its members with informative support such as info for news arrivals but also economic, political and investment related developments. Besides, the Chamber organises on a regular basis business and social events.

Once a member of the BCCSA, a company can join the European Union (EU) Chamber. The EU Chamber has a considerable voice by representing more than 2000 European companies or 20% of the South African employment. Its role of advocacy and lobbying at S.A. government level makes it a very relevant platform for European companies that are established on the market.
