Belgium, officially the Kingdom of Belgium, is a federal state in Western Europe. It is a founding member of the European Union and hosts the EU's headquarters, as well as those of several other major international organisations such as NATO. Belgium covers an area of 30,528 square kilometres (11,787 sq mi), and it has a population of about 11 million people. Straddling the cultural boundary between Germanic and Latin Europe, Belgium is home to two main linguistic groups, the Dutch-speakers, mostly Flemish, and the French-speakers, mostly Walloons, plus a small group of German-speakers. Belgium's two largest regions are the Dutch-speaking region of Flanders in the north and the French-speaking southern region of Wallonia. The Brussels-Capital Region, officially bilingual, is a mostly French-speaking enclave within the Flemish Region. A small German-speaking Community exists in eastern Wallonia. Belgium's linguistic diversity and related political and cultural conflicts are reflected in the political history and a complex system of government.

Belgium is one of the most attractive European countries in terms of residence, citizenship and taxation. The country’s legislation and many of its regulations are based on this principle of international orientation.

Belgium offers an investor-friendly environment to anyone wishing to invest in an existing Belgian business or through a Belgian (holding) company investing in foreign businesses. Extensive tax treaty network allows investors to take advantage of tax planning opportunities with the establishment of a company in Belgium.
