The General Delegation of Flanders to Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia also closely monitors relations with the Slovakian partners from its headquarters in Vienna and its office in Prague.

The General Delegation of Flanders takes care of the diplomatic, political, social and cultural contacts between Slovakia and Flanders. The themes on which the office focuses stem from the Belgian state structure. Matters and policy areas that fall under the competences of the Government of Flanders in our country are also followed up abroad by the Government. Our office monitors political and policy developments in Slovakia, ensures appropriate communication, provides information about Flanders and its policy priorities, facilitates government contacts between Flanders and Slovakia and between midfield and cultural partners.

In addition to our relations with the national and local governments, we maintain and initiate many contacts with actors operating in a broad social field and with cultural actors. Themes that define the high standard of living in Flanders, receive a great deal of attention abroad: education, health care, social welfare, human and children's rights, science and innovation, research and development, agriculture, environment and climate, culture, arts and heritage.

The Delegation has no consular authority. The Embassy of Belgium is the point of contact. But we recommend every Flemish citizen setting up in Slovakia to register with the Representation. In addition, contacting the organization Flemings in the World (ViW) is highly recommended.
