My latest diplomatic journey has taken my wife and I from Moscow to London. Serving in the United Kingdom is a great privilege. I am committed to further developing the good relations between the UK and Belgium and promoting common interests to the benefit of both our countries. I therefore look forward to our partnership and collaboration.
I hope that you enjoy our website - a portal into Belgium's presence in the UK.
