On November 17, 2011, H.R.H. Prince Philippe of Belgium attended the 130th anniversary of the newspaper, L’Echo, in Brussels.  During the celebration banquet there were discussions regarding economic affairs and so forth.  There was also a lecture from Mr. Gerard Mesrallet entitled, Belgium: At the Crossroads in its Economic History and Energy: A Major Issue of Economic Growth.  Click here to view photos.

Fascinating.

Meanwhile, H.R.H. Princess Astrid attended the 50th anniversary of the Social Space Tele-Service held at the headquarters of the European Social TV service in Brussels.  This association aims to help those in need.
