This Saturday, the Benelux Interparliamentary Consultative Council approved the recommendation to make public transport between Luxembourg and Belgium free of charge.

Public transport between the Grand Duchy and our Belgian neighbor is likely to be made free. On Saturday morning, Benelux Parliament approved this idea, which was part of a larger list of suggestions.

The Parliament comprises 49 MPs from Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg and advises the three national governments. Luxembourg's Democratic Party (DP) MP Gusty Gras currently serves as the president of the Parliament.

Another suggestion that was accepted on Saturday morning is to improve the mutual recognition of diplomas from the three Benelux countries. In this context, the council also hopes to make cross-border internships and traineeships possible.
