Belgium - New Belgian Committee for trans-European energy infrastructure projects

It was announced in the Belgian State Gazette that on 4 December 2013, the Federal State and the three Regions (the Flemish region, the Walloon region and the region of Brussels-Capital) had signed a co-operation agreement relating to the institution of a co-ordination and facilitation committee for the granting of authorisation for trans-European energy infrastructure projects.  This co-operation agreement establishes an enforceable one-stop-shop authority responsible for facilitating and co-ordinating the permit-granting process for projects of common interest.
