Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Defense Philippe Goffin and United States Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium Ronald Gidwitz signed a “preclearance” agreement on Monday that will allow passengers boarding flights from Brussels Airport to the United States to clear U.S. customs and immigration prior to embarkation in Brussels, and to save time upon arrival. This agreement, which has been under discussion for several years, will help further strengthen the already substantial trade and investment between the two countries and promote Brussels Airport as a trans-Atlantic hub.

The annual report of Enabel is now published online. In this report, the development agency looks back on past activities. It focuses on 2019 but it also looks ahead by outlining the long-term strategy. 2030 is the year by which the international community wants to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Enabel has its own role to fulfil in this undertaking.

The report explains why these choices are made and how Enabel provides answers to these challenges.
