AntwerpA Belgian-Dutch trade mission on sustainable infrastructure and circular construction will take place on Friday in the Antwerp Trade Fair – the oldest trade fair in Europe. About 80 companies and organizations came to our country to see what the Netherlands is like and where exactly collaborations can take place. The Netherlands and Belgium share the desire to be fully circular by 2050.
The trade mission is led by Foreign Trade Minister Liesje Schreinemacher and Environment Minister Vivianne Heijnen. Minister Zuhal Demir (N-VA) is present for Belgium. “Europe has set heavy targets,” it sounds. “We can’t do it alone. Belgium and the Netherlands have been at the forefront of economic innovations in Europe for 400 years. A healthy rivalry keeps us sharp.”
To underline the importance of joint action, a Memorandum of Understanding of Understanding for the European Interreg Flanders-Netherlands project OUW-MIJN will also be presented on Thursday. This project is intended to facilitate the circular transition in the construction sector in Flanders and the Netherlands. Think of ‘biobased’ materials in roads, bridges and buildings.
