Welcome message of Mr. Olivier Belle, Ambassador of Belgium in Israel

Olivier Belle

Dear fellow citizens and Israeli friends

Fate, which often has pleasant surprises in store, took me and my family to Israel. We are very happy to have the opportunity to discover this country which has been at the heart of so many crucial events in the history of mankind.

It is a privilege for me to represent my country here and promote its multiple assets: its deep attachment to democratic values, the open-mindedness of its citizens, the dynamism of its economy and cutting-edge technologies, its vibrant artistic, intellectual and scientific scene.

It is a challenge to continue contributing to the harmonious and open relations between Israel and Belgium. Our two countries share common values and assets, and we should rely on them in order to strengthen our relations still further.

Last but not least, our duty is to offer high quality administrative services to the Belgians who live here as well as to those who stay in Israel temporarily. I am glad that I can rely on a motivated team whose commitment and experience are the best guarantee of success.

One has to seize the opportunities that fate puts on one’s way. I shall try, with the help of the Embassy’s team, to accomplish my mission in the best possible way, with reason and enthusiasm.
