The Foral Region of Navarre began operating in Brussels in October 1993 when it signed an advisory services agreement with the Belgian consulting firm Irelco. Later on, in March 1995, the now-extinguished company SODEXNA, Sociedad de Desarrollo Exterior de Navarra (S.L.) was set up. And finally, in February 1999, the Government of Navarre Delegation in Brussels was constituted.
Currently, the Navarre Permanent Office to the European Union has the mission of representing, defending and promoting the interests of the autonomous region before European Union institutions. Its main objective is to make it easier for the foral government to open up to Europe and do the same for companies, SMEs, public corporations, technology centres, chambers of commerce, universities, municipal governments, associations, NGOs and, in short, all of Navarran society. The Office’s team is made up of two people with several interns assisting each year.
The Navarre Permanent Office to the European Union is directly under the auspices of the Directorate General for External Action, which is part of the Government of Navarre Citizen Relations Department (Foral Decree 271/2019, of 30 October, which establishes the organic structure of the Department of Citizen Relations).
