Belgium launches national investment pactTuesday, 11 September 2018 16:09
It has six components: digital transition, cybersecurity, education (in the digital field), health care (digitalization of data), energy and mobility. For Prime Minister Charles Michel, a “new Eldorado” awaits Belgium.
While all the actors present stressed the need to rise above political divisions, the launch of the pact was marked by a first misstep since it was boycotted by the prime ministers of the Brussels Region and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, socialists Rudi Vervoort and Rudy Demotte, who see the launch of the pact as an election “propaganda” operation.
Prime Minister Michel steered clear of the polemic. “It’s their political choice,” he commented on the sidelines of the ceremony, adding that he wanted to work for the future of the 11 million Belgians. He said he remained available for everyone, including those absent from the ceremony.
Wallonia’s Prime Minister Willy Borsus noted that the Brussels Government was represented by Flemish liberal minister Guy Vanhengel.
