Visit, 6 October 2022

On 6 October, the auditors were invited to the FPS Foreign Affairs and the cabinet MoD.
The day started off with a visit to Egmont Palace, where our diplomats have already welcomed numerous heads of state, and went on with an interesting presentation by ambassadors Bruno Angelet (director Global Security Policy) and Axel Kenes (director general Multilateral Affairs) on their respective areas of responsibility. The first part ended with a lunch offered by Foreign Affairs, after which we headed for the cabinet of our minister of Defence.
After an introduction by Brigadier General An-Roos De Potter, Minister Ludivine Dedonder presented us with some files of particular importance to the Belgian Defence, such as the recently approved STAR plan and the Defence, Industry and Research Strategy (DIRS), in which the RHID, incidentally, plays a key role. The minister then openly answered all our Defence-related questions.
This informative day was concluded with a drink at the lounge of the cabinet.
