On 8 April, Minister Muyters and his Basque colleague, Minister of Work and Social Policy Beatriz Artolazabal Albeniz, signed an addendum to the Declaration of Intent between the Basque and the Flemish government of 1 June 2015. The addendum makes the exchange of good practices with regard to employment policy and vocational training and the organization of permanent cooperation channels between both regions possible.

The Basque delegation made use of the trip to Flanders to pay a visit to the VDAB and SERV-ECOSOC. These and other contacts give the Basques the opportunity to become acquainted with good practices with regard to immigration policy, digitization, the optimal employability of employees and the reduction of the pay gap.
