    Benelux Business Roundtable   (BBR)

    EU Transparency Register

    Goals / Remit

    The Benelux Business Roundtable (“BBR”) was constituted on 1 July 2015. It comprises business leaders of some of the largest companies (in terms of employment, contribution to GDP and investment) in the Region as well as knowledge partners. The BBR is expected to steadily grow, representing all relevant sectors of economic activity in the Benelux Region.

    Its members are united in their belief that acceleration of cross-border collaboration is crucial to assure growth and prosperity in one of the most dynamic regions of Europe. This acceleration should not be limited to the Benelux Region but the Benelux should be a driving force.

    Its natural partnership, based on common features of geography, history, culture, economic profile and formalized in the Benelux treaty, provides the three countries with a unique opportunity to realize on a smaller scale but at a faster pace many of the ambitions of the European project.

    Main EU files targeted

    The BBR is active at Benelux and national level and merely monitors EU policies and initiatives. In 2020, BBR activities were mostly at Benelux level. The BBR would only occasionally seek access to the institutions. In addition, the BBR sometimes organises events where Commission staff may be present (once or twice a year).

    Relevant topics: Digital Single Market, Energy and Climate change, Labour Mobility, Infrastructure
