Talks about direct flight between San Francisco and Brussels

Bilateral working visit to the United States


Secretary of State for Foreign Trade Pieter De Crem attended a conference on artificial intelligence at Berkeley University on Wednesday, May 17th, organized by the Amici Lovaniensis, West Coast US. This demonstrates once again the close bond between Belgium and California in terms of innovation, research and development.

 

On Thursday, May 18th, the last day of his mission in California, Secretary of State De Crem met United Airlines’ Director Strategic Initiatives to discuss a possible new direct flight between San Francisco and Brussels. Pieter De Crem is strongly committed to connecting our country in the best possible way with economic hubs worldwide. In recent years, he supported new and renewed connections between Brussels and Atlanta, Shanghai, Mumbai and Toronto and he is working for direct connections between Singapore and New Delhi.

 

Finally, Secretary of State De Crem also had the honor to inaugurate the new exhibit of René Magritte in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
