Host Country Agreement signed between Belgium and EFI

EFI will have privileges and immunities of an international organization in Belgium which consequently paves way for building a stronger presence of EFI in Belgium.

Establishment of EFI Liaison Office in Brussels has already increased EFI presence in Belgium earlier this year. Liaison Office is located in the European Forestry House and it has been operational since February 2013. It aims to strengthen the cooperation of EFI with EU institutions, Member Countries and international organizations represented in Brussels. It will foster the policy‐science interface regarding forest related issues and support EFI in advocating for forest research and information in Europe.
