|Dear reader, Beste landgenoten, Chers compatriotes,|
2020 has been a challenging year, far-from a business-as-usual situation. The COVID-19 pandemic affects all of us and our daily life has changed drastically. From the start of the crisis, the Embassy remained fully operational even if some activities have been limited. The traditional celebrations of King’s day on 15 November had also to be cancelled but our team took this opportunity to address a video message at this occasion. Our Honorary Consul to Karachi, Mr. Murtaza Hachwani, also published a very nice supplement about our country in a local newspaper.
This final issue of 2020 contains news on topics varying from August to December 2020. Usually, the newsletter focuses mainly on the latest events organized by or involving the Embassy. However, we have decided to evolve the concept and I am convinced that you may also enjoy reading articles focusing on initiatives and projects involving Belgian citizens, institutions or companies or linked in one way or another to Belgium.
I wish you a pleasant read and a successful, peaceful and healthy 2021.
