Public sector, Belgium

We understand the governments and infrastructure sector in Belgium

Governments and infrastructure sector entities operate in a highly pressurised environment, facing the challenge of better service delivery with limited resources.

In the midst of major reductions in public spending following the 2008 financial crisis and higher expectations for public investment due to the Covid-19 pandemic, public authorities are being forced to make tough decisions to, on the one hand, restrict services in response to the pressing need to cut their spending and, on the other hand, keep up to standards the welfare state system and provide stimulus packages for businesses and citizens.

Strategic planning is essential in giving clear policy direction, and usually the challenge is to strike a balance between political policies and legislative requirements.
