Dear members,
The collective of Asian BLCCs is going strong and we’re very excited to offer you this next talk together with all of them:

Belgium looking ahead: Recovery, Finance & Asia with Minister Vincent Van Peteghem


Please join members from Japan to Singapore to Delhi on 8 June from 7pm – 8:15pm JST, when we have the pleasure of listening to a talk by Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Vincent Van Peteghem. The talk will be introduced by Consul-General to Hong Kong & Macau, Mr. Peter Robberecht.


Minister Van Peteghem is in charge of the Coordination of the Fight against Fraud. He helps to make the government’s ambitious recovery plan a reality. An important task is to work out a comprehensive reform of the federal tax system in order to modernise and simplify it and make it fairer. It is his ambition to help build a more prosperous, sustainable, safe and forward-looking society.


With the above in mind, Minister Vincent van Peteghem is looking forward to talking to you about:

  • The approach Belgium has taken to handle the COVID-19 situation, mainly the vaccination program & the recovery plan;
  • New financial instruments implemented by the EU, including green finance;
  • The relationship between Belgium & Asia and the increase of protectionism.
