Let's not get bogged down in discussions about which region or which country will be able to attract the last few million. Let us be the country that implements the plans the quickest. For example, the recovery fund is calling for the rapid construction of 5G networks, but we are nowhere yet. It is also time for Belgium to take up its mandate in the European Investment Bank at long last," says Bart Steukers, Context Director at Agoria.
