Ambassador Of Belgium

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Belgium is a founding member of the European Union and, with the U.S., a founding member of NATO. We've been allies since 1832 and a number of U.S. firms have located their European headquarters there. If you're looking for a Charlotte connection, think Food Lion. Their parent company, The Delhaize Group, is Belgian. We meet the ambassador of Belgium to the U.S. to talk about all this and more - including this summer's USA/Belgium soccer match at the World Cup.
