Belgium to learn from Azerbaijan’s experience in organizing European Games

Belgian secretary of state for foreign trade, Pieter De Crem, noted during the Azerbaijani-Belgian Business Forum held in Baku that throughout two and a half years Baku has achieved the impossible by creating an excellent infrastructure for the First European Games.


According to De Crem, the organization of such an event will have a positive impact on Azerbaijan. “Firstly, it is a good sports challenge. Secondly, it will attract a lot of tourists to Azerbaijan, which will lead to even greater popularity of your country in Europe,” he stressed, adding that organizing an event on such a scale is very responsible work.“This is a very difficult and responsible task. But in case of success, and I am sure it will be so, Azerbaijan will be known as a country able to hold any large-scale events. So I see only advantages for Azerbaijan from holding these competitions,” Trend cited him as saying.He also said that the upcoming European Games cause great interest in Belgium. “In late May-early June a delegation of 120 people will arrive in Baku to get familiar with the organization of the competition and cooperation in this area. We would like to learn from Azerbaijan’s experience in this sphere. I expect that our athletes will take an active part in the upcoming Games and will return home with medals,” De Crem concluded.
