Vice-Prime Minister Kris Peeters at Hercules Trophy 2016

It’s becoming a yearly tradition: Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Labour, Economy and Consumer Affairs, Mister Kris Peeters, lighting the torch during the Hercules Trophy Opening Ceremony. Minister Peeters was accompanied by former World Champion and Olympic athlete Judo Gella Vandecaveye carrying the authentic Olympic torch of the Athens 2004 Olympic Summer Games.

Our MC Erika Van Tielen had the honour of interviewing the Vice Prime Minister. Asked why he’s visiting the Hercules Trophy every year, Mister Peeters replies that he’s impressed with the unique vibe of so many companies participating.

His ambition is to participate himself next year. We hope you’ll live up to it, Mister Vice Prime Minister!
