Only in Belgium
PM Guy Verhofstadt launched the promotional campaign "Only in Belgium".
PM Guy Verhofstadt (Flemish liberal) flanked by Belgium's regional Premiers on Monday launched the promotional campaign "Only in Belgium".
The idea is to sell Belgium as an investment country abroad.
The campaign is necessary because the political bickering at home in recent months has damaged our reputation.
Flemish Premier Kris Peeters (Christian democrat) insisted that we should leave times of complaining behind us and strive for excellence.
When people talk about Belgium we should seize the opportunity to promote our stabile and booming open economy our leaders say.
Walloon Premier Rudy Demotte (Francophone socialist) says we should not hide our joy when we see the objective indicators show that Belgium and its regions are attractive.
The four Premiers gave their all to persuade ambassadors and foreign press that everything was OK in the kingdom of Belgium.
