“The Dutch and the Flemish are beste buren (good neighbors). We both speak the same language and we live right next to each other, yet, as neighbors often do, we get together far too rarely. This is a pity as we have so much to offer each other, now and into the future. That is why we have named this the year of BesteBuren, a year to highlight Dutch-Flemish cultural and artistic collaboration.”
