Event Summary
Event Summary

Proudly presented for the 5th time now: it's the annual Belgium Business Seminar 2021! This year we once again dive into a very hot topic with a Belgian twist: ESG & ESG Finance!


The BLCC warmly thanks sponsors KBC Bank, Liege Airport & The Consulate General of the Kingdom of Belgium to Hong Kong & Macau for enabling this event.


Started in 2016, the BLCC Belgium Business Seminar is an annual event and this year is planned for 21 October in the offices of the HKGCC in Admiralty. Doors are open from 3.30pm.


Opening remarks will be provided by Consul-General of the Consulate of the Kingdom of Belgium Mr. Peter Robberecht.


This year the BLCC is delighted to welcome to our keynote stage, a speaker from long standing BLCC corporate member Umicore: Mr. Kurt Vandeputte, Senior Vice President Government Affairs.

Mr. Vandeputte (a graduate of Gent University) has been close to 25 years with Umicore and this has exposed him to the many facets of this flagship Belgian materials technology & recycling group. We are looking forward to his talk delivered live from Belgium.


In his keynote address Mr. Vandeputte will give our guests an insiders' view on how Umicore develops material solutions to some of our most daunting global challenges around electric mobility, the energy transition and the changing climate. We will learn more about the technology strategy of Umicore. Recently the company has launched their ambitious 'Go for Zero' ESG-strategy and we will get good insights in this action plan.


This brings us nicely to the main topic of this year's Belgium Business Seminar: ESG Finance: Vital for a Sustainable Future.

Taking over the baton from Mr. Vandeputte, we welcome our expert panel made up of finance experts each in a field of their own:

  • Mr. Pierre Hautfenne – Group Treasury Senior Manager – Global Operations & APAC Region with Umicore
  • Mr. Pierre CG Rousseau – Senior Strategic Adviser for Sustainable Business with BNP Paribas
  • Mr. Frank Vandenborre – Group Director Sustainability with Ageas


Our panel will be expertly moderated by our BLCC member Mrs. Ching-Yng Choi, Founder of CYC Asia Europe Consulting.


As is tradition, there will be a cocktail reception after the seminar to further reflect upon what was discussed while enjoying some drinks & food.

More information about the reception here (click).


The seminar will take place physically at the offices of the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce on the 22/F of the United Centre in Admiralty.
