"Although this new webpage was launched in dire economic times, now that the pandemic is jeopardizing much of our established commercial paths and patterns, we should look forward with confidence and prepare for a vigorous restart.

My thoughts are with the Belgian trade missions and their numerous participants, who became familiar and dear to me during the last 6 years. Many of you have suffered difficulties, many promising prospects of our recent missions might be put temporarily on hold.

Nevertheless, let us hope for the missions to resume soon in 2021. For my part, together with you I stand ready, with dedication and enthusiasm, to travel again with you, to support the agencies and the companies, to make up for business lost during the pandemic while exploring new opportunities."
