BODYGUARD SERVICES IN BELGIUM
Belgium is a country with a complex political system inherited by a sequence of state reformations. Authority is still divided into districts for economics and infrastructure, while the defense, justice, and social securities fall under the federal government. Based on the diversity in cultures, 40% of the people speak French (Wallonia in the south), 60% speak Dutch (Flanders in the North), and only a small group speaks German (in the East).
Brussels, situated on the borderline of the two major languages, is Belgium’s capital. Besides housing the national government, the city is also the seat for the European Parliament, NATO, and other related institutions.
The Brussels international function has attracted many multinationals to open up a subsidiary, turning the city into a huge diplomatic and business hub. In fact, Brussels is the second largest European business city after London and Paris. Besides offices and international diplomatic services, more (political) conventions take place every year than in Washington DC.
SAFETY & SECURITY IN BELGIUM
Brussels, the capital of Belgium, and major cities like Antwerp and Gent, are quite safe to visit as tourists or business executives. Like in any other European city, you should always be aware of petty theft, scams, and pickpocketing.
The heightened risk for a terrorist attack stems from the severe suicide bombing at Zaventem Airport in Brussels in March 2016, where 32 people died, and 340 were injured. Security at major airports all over the world has become far more stringent since this tragic date.
