Brussels-Capital Region signs partnership with Seoul

The Brussels-Capital Region and Seoul have signed a friendship and cooperation agreement in the South Korean capital. Belgium's Princess Astrid, who is leading the economic mission, was crowned as honorary citizen of Seoul.

State secretary of the Brussels-Capital Region, Cécile Jodogne and mayor of Seoul, Park Won-soon, today signed the friendship agreement which is expected to lead to numerous exchanges between the metropolitan areas, including economic investment, job creation, technological development, social innovation, e-government and urban development.

Initially, it was former Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur who was to sign the agreement, but his resignation last week following a corruption scandal meant that Jodogne took part in the mission to Seoul.

With the agreement, the Brussels-Capital Region wants to strengthen its profile as the gateway to Europe.
