Slovak Foreign and European Affairs Minister, Miroslav Lajčák, received Lepage within a concluding visit, and thanked him for his work, as quoted by the TASR newswire. He also stressed the high level of Slovak-Belgian relations, being flawless and very good, in both political and economic fields.

The Belgian government closes the Bratislava office because of budgetary reasons, the Slovak ministry informed. However, Belgian companies continue to enhance their investment and business activities.
