Belgium’ challenges

Belgium is a country located at the crossroads of Western Europe. It borders France to the southwest, Luxembourg to the southeast, Germany to the east and the Netherlands to the north. The majority of West European capitals are within 1,000 km of the Belgian capital of Brussels.

Belgium is one of the founding members of the European Union and EU is just headquartered in Belgium. Belgium is also a Benelux country, which is an economic union comprising three neighbouring monarchies, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

Belgium is a federal state, with 3 relatively autonomous regions: Flanders in the north, where the language is Dutch (“Flemish”), Wallonia in the south, where the language is French, and the centrally located Brussels, which is officially bilingual.

People living in Belgium probably are enjoying the best quality of life in the world due to its excellent food, housing, health care, education and infrastructure, its world records for high productivity and low poverty, and the appreciation of foreigners. This satisfaction partly owes to the freedom and tolerance of the Belgium society.

However, there are also some vexed problems facing Belgium.

In terms of Belgium’s politics, it is a constitutional, popular monarchy and a parliamentary democracy. The parliament is made up of a Senate and a Chamber of Representatives. The king is the head of the state, but with limited prerogatives. He is responsible for appointing Prime Minister. The political components in Belgium are complicated. In general, different political powers are divided according to different cultural and linguistic communities. There are three major political powers in Belgium: the right-wing Liberals, the socially conservative Christian Democrats and the left wing socialists.

The problem results from the fact that the talks between Belgium’s leading political parties on forming a coalition government have again ended in failure. It is hard to imagine that a society operates without an official government.the King Albert was even consulting political leaders Saturday on how to end this political stalemate.

Another concern from the tourists could be the safety on the street of Belgium. In the early 2006, a 17 years old young man, Joe Van Holsbeeckwas, was killed for his MP3 player during peak-hour in Brussels’ Central Station. This accident triggered the biggest march with 800,000 people in the country since the White March a decade earlier when 300,000 people marched on the street. The march is for memorising the innocent young man and putting pressure on the government to control street violence.

Moreover, like other Western European countries, the aging population, affordability of social security, integration of migrant workers, the issue of asylum seekers and sustainable development are part of the most urgent challenges the government may face.
