The Spanish Financial Forum was launched in 2019 at the initiative of several members of the Official Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Belgium and Luxembourg, linked to the financial sector in Luxembourg.
Through this Committee, the Chamber aims to create in Luxembourg a space for opinion and debate on economic and financial issues where professionals working in companies related to the provision of financial services who are members of the Chamber can share experiences, establish collaborations, exchange information on sector trends and generate business opportunities. It also aims to position itself as “hispanic” interlocutor with the Luxembourg institutions in the financial sector.
