VOKA (The Chamber of Commerce East Flanders)

The Chamber of Commerce East Flanders originated early 2000 after a merger of three district Chambers of Commerce: Ghent-Eeklo, Dendermonde and South East-Flanders (Aalst, Oudenaarde-Ronse). The Chamber is not a government agency, but an independent and cross-sector business organization that can depend upon a very long tradition.

The Chamber of Commerce in Ghent was established in 1729, while similar organizations arose in other cities of the province in the middle of the 19 century: Aalst (1841), Dendermonde (1842), Oudenaarde (1854) and Ronse (1899). Since 1875, the Belgian Chambers of Commerce – once started as public institutions – have a private statute and function by and for companies, who voluntarily join as members.

Since 2004 the East-Flemish Chamber, along with 7 other Flemish Chambers and the Flemish Economic Association (VEV), form Voka, the Flemish network of enterprises. It represents more than 18,000 companies in Flanders and Brussels, and accounts for 65% of private employment and 66% of the added value in Flanders.

As the closest and most influential professional network of entrepreneurs and as a representative employers organization in East Flanders, Voka East Flanders wants to create an optimal framework for successful entrepreneurship and thus wants to contribute fundamentally to the prosperity and welfare of its region.
