State Visit to Portugal – take-off

22nd October 2018

Their Majesties the King and the Queen, together with Secretary of State for Foreign Trade Pieter De Crem, took off this morning from the military airport of Melsbroek for a three-day State Visit to Portugal. An important economic delegation will be part of this State Visit and will focus on our bilateral trade relations with this important European partner.


The State Visit will further strengthen these ties and continue the century-old cooperation between our countries. During three days the visit will allow for political contacts at the highest level, knowledge sharing, cultural exchange and the promotion of economic ties to the benefit of both our countries. Hence one can only conclude, "Belgium and Portugal, good friends in times of prosperity, strong allies in times of adversity".
