Minister Geen’s recent proposal to reduce the tax burden on the Belgian economy by €6 billion is part of a raft of measures by the CD&V party aimed at increasing the competitiveness of the Belgian economy, recently hit hard by the Euro crisis, and under pressure in the longer term due to an ageing population and an increasingly competitive global market.

          With Europe’s nations facing an urgent need to boost their competitiveness and foster a sustainable recovery, how will the Belgian Ministry of Finance look to strengthen the economy whilst reducing the country’s debt burden? How will the Ministry of Finance respond to recent recommendations from the International Monetary Fund to slow the rate of debt reduction?

          At this important moment for Belgium’s economy, join us for a breakfast with HMA Jonathan Brenton and Minister Geens, part of our Ambassador hosts series.
