“The BBC is planning, given Brexit, to open a major base on the continent,” a Belgian government source told AFP, confirming press reports.
“The prime minister met BBC managers yesterday in Davos to sell them on Belgium. We know we’re on the shortlist. There are two more, including Amsterdam.”
Belgian leader Charles Michel is at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, where he spoke with BBC Director General Tony Hall.
“Belgium is often on the shortlist of companies eager to anchor in the European Union after Brexit,” Michel said.
