Unemployment rate lower in Brussels than in Antwerp or GhentWednesday, 18 January 2017 15:39
Mr Gosuin flagged up, during the DéFI party's New Year's reception, “Two years ago, unemployment in the Brussels area was far superior to that of Antwerp or Ghent. Currently, unemployment tends to be slightly above or below the two Flemish cities from month to month.”
He went on, “Unemployment is even significantly lower than the Walloon cities, such as Liège or Charleroi.”
Rather than attacking individuals, the party decided to take advantage of the event to assess positively - mid-term - the work of their ministers in the Brussels government.
Mr Gosuin yesterday also welcomed the fact that the skills for Employment and Professional Training having been merged into the hands of a single minister within this parliament - his.
He says that this decision has paid off even if the “neo-liberal” policy has considerably put the brakes on an attempt of the Brussels coalition to eliminate inequalities within the region.
