He attended discussions with Luxembourg prime minister Xavier Bettel at his offices at the Hôtel de Bourgogne where the two discussed the importance of strengthening bilateral ties between member states and European political and social current affairs.
Brexit was a major focus of the chat, and Bettel stressed the need to minimise its negative impact. He said that Luxembourg was ready to “complete the economic and monetary union to make the euro area more resilient to potential financial shocks.”
The two also visited the facilities of SES and LuxGovSat in Betzdorf.
