Strategy paper USA
In 2016, the Government of Flanders approved the strategy paper "Flanders - United States of America".
In addition to the specific importance of the US for Flanders, in the fields of education, economics and cultural cooperation, the global importance of the USA is still unmistakable. Political, military, economic, cultural and scientific developments in the US have implications for the whole world and, therefore, for Flanders.
The strategy paper shows the way in which the government maintains relations with the United States of America, Flanders main partner outside the EU. It lists the main goals Flanders sets out towards the US, as well as the tools which should help to achieve these goals.
