Talks on the issue started in 2014 between the ministers concerned, the Walloon Region, the provinces, three communes, the respective land registries, police and institutions managing the waterways of the two countries.
From the 1st of January 2018, the territorial swap will become official. Belgium is handing over a little more than 16 ha of its territory, only natural zones, to the Netherlands, and will receive, in return, 3ha from The Hague, as well as the Lanaye Sluice, a strategic passageway for river traffic.
