Political Journey of Limburg Governor Herman Reynders

EPN Limburg was honored to receive Herman Reynders, the governor of Limburg, at the office of the Vuslat Association Beringen for a conference in which the governor shared his experience he has gained throughout his political career.

The governor first told about his childhood focusing on how he grew up, where he went to school and how he stepped into politics. According to Mr. Reynders, his family was active in politics and so from an early age he came in contact with important politicians. He then talked about the main tasks of a governor, saying the tasks of a governor are not usually known well by the public. The governor said: “You must have a passion for what you do. And if you don’t, you’d better quit!” He believes this is the key to having a happy and successful society. Various topics such as education, economy and social cohesion in society etc. were also discussed at the event.
