11:12 22/10/2019

The Bulletin's autumn/winter edition is out now, packed with interviews, insight and information to help you make the most of life in Belgium.

The feature-rich 132-page magazine is on sale in Belgian newsagents - and will also be distributed at key expat community events over the coming months, from theatre performances to Christmas parties.

What's inside:

  • How the EU capital can be less than welcoming for highly qualified professionals from outside the bloc

  • Jewel in the crown: Why Antwerp is the leading light of the world’s diamond industry

We are proud to present this snapshot of life in Belgium - and we’re confident that with our readers, we can continue to enjoy our journey in Belgium together. After increasing The Bulletin's print run to four magazines a year in 2017, we have taken the difficult but pragmatic decision to focus our efforts on The Bulletin’s online platform and instead publish one magazine a year from 2020.

A dual online and print strategy for The Bulletin relies on maintaining our commitment to informing and inspiring the international community in Belgium. To do that effectively and to reflect its concerns, more than ever, we need an interactive community. In transferring much of our energy to our online platform, we are looking forward to the opportunity it creates to explore new forms of journalism.
