The Flemish Ministry of Public Works and Mobility is largely competent for traffic, mobility, infrastructure and public works. Under the auspices of the Flemish Ministry of Public Works and Mobility, FITA agency promotes the know how in these areas worldwide upon request of the private sector federations such as the Flemish Building Confederation ( VCB), the association of consulting engineers ( ORI ), the Flemish Environmental Experts ( VMD ) and UNIZO International  ( the association of internationally operating SME’s). Environmental protection and logistics are other key issues to FITA.


Nevertheless, FITA’s core business today is to render public expertise to the private sector. FITA has been providing ( technical ) assistance to its beneficiary consulting companies through working contracts based on daily performences. FITA experts have been recruited recently to conduct additional studies and provide technical assistance in preparing engineering specifications for the development of  a new set of Post- Panamax locks for the expansion of the Panama Canal. Experts in waste management have also been nominated to environmental projects in Central and Eastern – Europe.


Another major responsibility is the organisation of sectorial trade missions. FITA trade missions can save you time and expense in identifying and developing profitable relationships with compatible foreign companies and local public authorities. FITA sectorial trade missions will allow you to present your knowledge and expertise directly to qualified prospects through a series of presentations and networking events.
