As a lobbyist to the Province of Zeeland in Brussels, I advocate the specific EU-related interests of the Province.
Negotiated files are related to the following policy fields:
- EU funds & multi-annual budget
- European agricultural policy (CAP)
- Energy(transition) and Climate
- Fisheries policy
I have a rich international career of 12 years in India, South-Africa and Austria, working as the foreign affairs correspondent for the news services of the VRT.
I graduated from a Masters’ degree in International Relations, and back in Belgium I worked at the Europe-desk of the VRT and as a lobbyist for Voka Chamber of Commerce Flemish-Brabant and Brussels. The files that I executed successfully are related to business climate, labour market, mobility and fiscal matters.
