Inspiring Belgium-Japan Relations

The Marilo Fund was founded by Mr and Mrs Blondé-Eelen within the King Baudouin Foundation and partners with the Belgium-Japan Association & Chamber of Commerce. The Marilo Fund supports journalists contributing to a better understanding of Japanese society for Belgian entrepreneurs and thus the wider public. A total of 10 journalists already received a grant.
In honor of the late Co-founder, Mr Frans Blondé, you are cordially invited to a lecture of Prof. Dr. Vande Walle giving insights into 150 years Belgium-Japan relations while presenting his newest publication.
