Members Services

The Belgian Chamber of Commerce for Southern Africa (BCCSA) is the platform for networking and opportunity-sharing between Belgian companies and nationals present in South Africa, and South Africans interested in business opportunities with Belgium.

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.

  • Build up the image of Belgian companies in SA through social and business events (e.g. company visit);
