Official Mission in Brussels
ONLYLYON actors on an official mission in Brussels for a series of strategic meetings with European bodies.
In mid-March 2018, an official ONLYLYON delegation went to Brussels to endorse our city in the Belgian capital:
David Kimelfeld, President of Lyon Metropole went to Brussels to sign the Cohesion Alliance which supports the European policy of stronger cohesion for all cities and regions after 2020. It is thanks to the European Smarter Together project, largely funded by Europe, that smart solutions in the energy, transport and information technology sectors are being tested in the Confluence district.
The delegation, led by the President of Lyon Metropole, launched its trip with a promotional event to fly the flag for ONLYLYON, with Mathieu Viannay, MOF (One of the Best craftsmen in France) and Michelin-starred chef from the restaurant la Mère Brazier.
The official launch of the Brussels network of ONLYLYON Ambassadors, sponsored by Vincent Carry and hosted by 2 correspondents, Lucie Jacquemet and Geoffroy Vernay-Carron, was attended by Michel Barnier, member of the European Commission, and 150 guests.
