In light of LuxLeaks and other knocks to the Grand Duchy’s international reputation, Bettel said the government would keep an inter-ministerial task force in place and also revamp the government’s official press and information service (SIP).
Saying the country is keeping up with educational demands, Bettel pointed to the planned opening of a new international school in Differdange in the south this autumn and in the north the Lycée de Clervaux, whose symbolic first stone will be laid next week. A digital education strategy will also be unveiled within the next two weeks, he said, and the government is currently discussing a seven-point reform plan with teachers unions.
Following the “Artuso report”, which documented how some Luxembourgers collaborated with Nazi Germany, in his address Bettel announced the creation of a remembrance committee and a permanent historical exhibition that will be developed with the University of Luxembourg.
