Start/End date:

Event type:

Country: 
Belgium
City: 
Brussels

The conference celebrating 25 years of Flemish foreign economy will reflect on and highlight a number of remarkable successes of Flemish foreign policy, but also look ahead and underline the importance of foreign policy and the added value of international cooperation in many policy areas. Particular attention will be granted to areas with a significant, and sometimes even disruptive, impact on our society, such as the transition to a circular economy.

A panel of Flemish pioneers will exchange views on successes and challenges in the circular economy at an international level. This links closely to the Vision 2050 adopted by the Flemish government, which includes the circular economy as one of 7 important transitions that will have a lasting impact on society.
