Belgium is a candidate to manage the strategic stock of masks for all the countries of the European Union, said Thursday evening Het Laatste Nieuws, who relays a report by Secretary of State Philippe De Backer.

According to this report from the task force responsible for the supply of material to fight against the coronavirus, dated June 9, the Belgian candidacy to manage the strategic stock “RescEU” was filed on June 5.

Belgium was allegedly requested to do so by the European Union because of its central location but also because it did not block any transport of protective equipment to other countries during the crisis, the daily said.

Our country is not the only one to show an interest, however. Belgium will have to defend its candidacy in mid-July, before knowing the result in August.
