AmCham Belgium meets Cathy Berx

Tuesday, October 06, 2020
16:30 to 17:30

The AmCham Belgium Antwerp Chapter is pleased to invite you for a new AmCham Belgium meets Cathy Berx, Governor of the province of Antwerp, in collaboration with BEPACT (Belgian Public Affairs Community).

As governor, Cathy Berx is the representative or ‘commissioner’ of the Federal and the Flemish Government in the province of Antwerp and liaises with the federal government, Flemish government, the province of Antwerp and the local authorities.

Whilst some critics believe the role of a governor is no longer needed and consider it as decorum, the important local responsibility of a governor has recently been reconfirmed to successfully manage the strategic and policy decisions to fight this unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic in Belgium. 

We are honored that Cathy Berx wants to share her thoughts:

  • on the current and future responsibility of the province in light of the latest governmental reforms;
  • on the important role of a governor as honest broker and liaison between the different governmental institutions;
  • on important crisis management responsibility of a governor to fight COVID-19 in Antwerp.

This (live) event will take place on Tuesday,  October 6 2020 at 4:30 p.m. on Zoom.  After registering, you will receive a Zoom invite with a personal link to join the meeting.
