Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders met 16 young artists at the Palais d’Egmont on the 4th of June.

“Colors of the World” is an International Festival of Language and Culture which was held at Forest National, Brussels. The festival, which is supported by the European Parliament, was held in Brussels for the second year in a row. The festival aims to promote cultural interaction, multilingualism and respect for cultural differences through a show adorned with songs, poems and folk dances, where children from 5 continents and 150 countries are the main participants.

Didier Reynders, sponsor of the event, met with the young artists to give them his best wishes on the eve of this great show. After the meeting, they visited the Egmont Palace, a place of great prestige which daily hosts large conferences in which many Heads of State and government from around the world take part. The event is internationally recognized for giving children from all over the world the opportunity to meet each other and establish a relationship that goes beyond the borders of their respective states.
