Financial exclusion arising from excessive debt and prevention of these have been chosen as relevant topics by the Spanish, Belgian and Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. They have stressed the importance of promoting better social cohesion and the struggle against social exclusion and poverty.
The EU having being declared 2010 as the “European year for combating poverty and social exclusion”, the Walloon Minister of Health, Social action and Equal opportunities, and Wallonia-Brussels International are willing to hold a debate on the struggle against social exclusion and poverty resulting from excessive debt.
