L'Echo & De Tijd
Issue 40 | September 2016
Brussels is still recovering from the terrorist attacks of March 22nd. Terror threat level went up; the moral went down. The international press called Belgium a 'failed state'. Tourists stayed away, and Belgians chose to avoid their infamous capital. One month later, the impact on Brussels' economy was enormous and especially the restaurant industry was heavily impacted. In April 2016 the number of bankruptcies increased from 40 (April 2015) to 600 (April 2016) and 50% of the Brussels' restaurants are facing serious financial problems. As leading business newspapers, De Tijd and L'Echo wanted to create awareness & engage people to support the Brussels economy.
