Speech of His Majesty the King of Belgium
at the National Domestic Workers Movement
Mumbai, Friday 10 November 2017.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Sharing this moment with you is for the Queen and I a source of great joy. We thank you for the gift of your smiles and song.
We are happy that we could include a visit here in our program in India.
Strong values guide the relations between our two countries since a long time. They were specially felt during the First World War through the heroic support of brave Indian soldiers who fought at our side for our liberty.
Many Belgians also came to India, fascinated by this great country and its people, to give the best of themselves wherever there was a need.
Among those is Sister Jeanne. Dear Sister, we know you since a long time. You dedicated your life working for others. We are grateful for your dedication and your energy. What you have created here is a powerful example for all of us.
Let me thank you and congratulate you, Sister Jeanne, and all those who work here in a spirit of selflessness. Queen Mathilde and I wish you every success.
