The situation in Belgium is such that continuing on the current course is no longer an option. Fiddling in the margins, or muddling politics is a postponement of action, where our legacy consists of an exhausted planet, an overtaxed population that is weighed down by heavy debt and governed by a multi-headed oversized administration. The Corona crisis should enable the substituting of the mentality "as long as the orchestra is playing" with a sense of urgency whereby responsibility and solidarity are no longer empty concepts. This presupposes a vision of the future of our country embedding structural measures. Although such an approach needs to be holistic by nature, this paper highlights two concrete measures, one linked to structural fiscal reform and one linked to a reshoring vision for our industry.
