Activities & realizations

The General Representation of the Government of Flanders supports all partners in the realizations of their projects anchored in the bilateral working programs. These working programs implement the cooperation agreements signed with the partner countries in the jurisdiction of the Representation. The Representations also prepares the visits of ministerial, parliamentary and official delegations. In close cooperation with the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Dutch Language Union the General Representation of the Government of Flanders supports the Dutch studies at university level and promotes culture from the Netherlands and Flanders in the region. In close cooperation with the Netherlands Embassy a joint electronic cultural newsletter, giving an overview of the main Dutch and Flemish cultural events in the region, is published on a quarterly basis.

On the occasion of the national day of Flanders each year a Flemish Day is organized in Poland, comprising both cultural and economic events. Since a few years these Days predominantly take place in provincial capitals: in 2010 in Poznan; in 2011 in Lublin; in 2012 in Lodz; in 2013 in Bydgoszcz and in 2014 in Białystok. The program of these Days usually also focusses on Flanders in Action, the strategy for future of the Flemish Government.
