Participation Minister-President Jambon RLEG event

  • January 21, 2022

On January 21, Minister-President Jambon participated in an online event of the RLEG initiative via a pre-recorded video message. RLEG brings together regions that proactively contribute to the future of Europe with an inclusive and constructive approach. The sixteen participating regions each have legislative powers and advocate greater involvement in decision-making within the European Union (EU).

In his video message, Minister-President Jambon emphasized the important - but often underexposed - role played by regions within the EU. After all, regions are closest to society and are therefore ideally positioned to take cognizance of and defend its interests.

The Conference on the Future of Europe is an opportunity to re-promote this message and make it widely heard across Europe. Flanders will also continue to make an active effort to convey this message and to strengthen the position of the regions in the European Union.
