Visit of European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms,Miss Elisa Ferreira
On Tuesday, September 6, we had the honor to welcome a European Commissioner at Abattoir. Mrs. Elisa Ferreira, responsible for European Cohesion and Reforms, came to see how Abattoir manages the ERDF funds made available to it by Europe and the Brussels-Capital Region. Together with the Mayor of Anderlecht, Mr. Fabrice Cumps, and the Secretary of State of Brussels, Mr. Pascal Smet, we visited the FOODMET and the urban farm BIGH on the roof of the food hall. At the same time, we could show them the construction site where the next ERDF project, the Manufakture, is being built. Commissioner Ferreira was extremely grateful and praised all these projects and achievements, a great example of how the public and private sectors can work together to get things done. The Brussels Region's administrations were justifiably proud to be able to show these and other Brussels projects to the European Commissioner.
