On 9 June, a “Belgian Alley” was inaugurated in Kiev’s historic city centre while a festival of the French-speaking community was held the next day. The Belgian Ambassador, Luc Jacobs, starred at both events.
From 11 until 13 June, several meetings were held with various departments of the City of Kiev to exchange information. The discussions culminated in cooperation projects in various fields, including heritage (Art Nouveau, Art Deco), decentralisation, a women’s business network connecting Brussels and Kiev, public transport and parking management, energy-efficient street lighting, waste management, urban planning and bicycle-friendly policy.
Kiev also confirmed its participation in the 2018 eat! BRUSSELS festival, where it will be represented by the famous Kupidon restaurant.
