As the the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, so the measures taken by the Belgian public authorities are evolving too, including “furlough” to support employment. The current very flexible temporary unemployment due to Corona force majeure will come to an end on 31 August and of course the question for your organisation is “What's next?”. As of 1 September 2020, several temporary unemployment schemes will apply in Belgium. These will be subject to specific conditions and procedures. Please join us on this webinar, where we will guide you through the various schemes that will apply and will give you some useful practical tips.

British-Belgian business is hugely valuable to both our countries. Whatever storms may come – Brexit, COVID-19 or other disruptors – that relationship will not only continue but I’m sure will strengthen over the coming years. In order to help facilitate this the British Chamber is re-structuring our Business, Trade and Investment Committee and setting up new Task Forces specifically focussed on each of these elements. The first of these, the Bi-Lateral Trade Task Force, is being launched through an Open Forum discussion on Thursday 7 May 2020 and we’re calling on members to get involved and help us shape our future trade agenda and work programme. You can take part by signing up here. It’s also an early opportunity to ‘e-meet’ our new Chief Executive, Daniel Dalton who will be co-hosting with me so we look forward to seeing you then.
