The Belgium Financial Forum of the National Bank of Belgium (NBB) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) jointly hosted a webinar entitled “Investment for a sustainable recovery in Belgium” on Friday 30 April 2020. It was a timely opportunity for 700 representatives from all sectors and from the financial community to debate the short and long-term economic challenges facing Belgian businesses.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) and Société Publique de Gestion de l’Eau (SPGE) have announced a €4.5 million agreement to finance a series of projects in Wallonia specifically intended to improve biodiversity and restore and/or preserve ecosystems. In particular, this loan will support the efforts of SPGE – which is working with all local stakeholders (Walloon public administration, Natura 2000, etc.) – to re-establish the conditions enabling the freshwater pearl mussel to return to the rivers and streams of Wallonia.
