On February 14th 2017, current and past Fulbright grantees met with Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Development Cooperation, Digital Agenda, Telecom and Postal Services Alexander De Croo at his office in Brussels. After introductions, Mr. De Croo summarized his career, talked about his Fulbright experience, and focused on his current work in the changing world of development and the shift in the direction of today’s European political atmosphere.
Discussion topics ranged from farming practices in Sub-Saharan Africa, to how the current US Administration will affect the future of European politics.
The Fulbright Commission would like to thank Mr. De Croo for his hospitality and interesting conversation, and hope for more connections at future “Meet and Greets”!
