Prime Minister of Belgium: EU is a unique project

Last week in the European Parliament, Prime Minister Charles Michel (ALDE Party member Mouvement Réformateur) of Belgium debated the future of Europe with MEPs and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. The Prime Minister said: "I want a strong Europe that acts where it can add real value". Michel also believes the EU should "persuade with an ideal and concrete results". He stressed: "the EU remains a unique project in the history of mankind. It is perhaps a work not yet finished, but on which we progress continuously. It is especially a promise for a better world."

Charles Michel listed three imperatives: fostering prosperity, delivering security and protecting fundamental values. In his words: “putting our public finances in order, delivering economic and social reforms, taking security measures and promoting peace are an endless battle to serve the European ideal and European citizens," he stressed, calling for a "culture of results” and efforts to ”release the exceptional potential of our continent”. He added: "The EU can be the engine of a reinvigorated multilateralism that takes the great challenges facing humanity: peace and security, development and global warming.”
