"Flanders has a lot of job vacancies and low unemployment. This is why we must bring job-seekers from Brussels and Wallonia here to fill the vacancies”, Mr Bothuyne said.
The Flemish Employment and Vocational Training Service VDAB and the Brussels Employment services Actris launched a joint campaign a couple of weeks ago the aim of which is to direct those seeking work in the capital towards situations that are vacant in the Flemish Brabant municipalities just outside Brussels.
Mr Bothuyne calls for the cooperation between VDAB and Actiris to be continued and intensified.
"Brussels job-seekers that wish to move in order to take on a job in Flanders should have a right to assistance, for example when looking for a home or a school for their children. These a structural solutions to our labour market issues”, the Christian democrat politician said.
