Welcoming address of the Ambassador

Alex LenaertsDear friends,

Ukraine is a young republic, which has been independent for 27 years. The greatest wealth of the country is its remarkable human potential. Hardly gained independence of Ukraine was reaffirmed after the Revolution of Dignity. Ukrainians have chosen the way towards Europe. The courageous and voluntary choice was immediately supported by the Kingdom of Belgium and European institutions.

Both Brussels and Kyiv belong to the European family. Our bilateral relations have intensified due to the recent reforms. My mission in Ukraine is to strengthen these ties and to promote our cooperation. Every single level is important and so political level, investment and commerce, consular cooperation, cultural and academic sector are only the main ones. Ukrainians and Belgians have a lot to discover about each other`s countries.
