Belgian King wants economic growth to benefit each citizen

Belgian King wants economic growth to benefit each citizen
In his New Year's speech on Thursday, Philippe, King of the Belgians, praised the strong economic growth in Belgium and Europe, saying the benefits accrued should trickle down to all citizens.

The speech was made to state bodies and is traditionally delivered at the Royal Palace in Brussels on the occasion of the new year.

"As Belgium and Europe return to stronger economic growth, it is also essential that no one feels left behind," he said. "It is important to create a better match between supply and demand in the labor market, and this challenge can only be met by a joint effort from all actors: companies, teachers, and job seekers."

The King emphasized the importance of diversity in society for the stability of the country.

"We are fortunate to live in a very diverse society, and working for a more harmonious society contributes to its stability," he said, adding: "Anything that aims to strengthen the cohesion between individuals and between groups is of major importance."
