"Over the past few years, we've set Brussels in motion. We are evolving from a car-centric city to a city for people. A city that literally makes place for people to meet each other and to relax. Because these are the essential ingredients for a society in which everyone feels at home and can be themselves. We are turning our city into everyone's living space. Today, it is time to take the next important steps. We will bring the quality of our architecture and our public space to a higher level and put Brussels on the international map for what it is: an ambitious city with a strong personality.”
