Hi Open Knowledge BE, OSM BE and CC BE,

A couple of us have been giving feedback to the federal government 
regarding their open data strategy. Today, the strategy has been 
approved by the ministerial council:


The strategy contains a lot of our recommendations. We thus can only 
look forward to a bright future of open data in Belgium. The strategy 
provides extremely interesting points for e.g., the OSM community: all 
data should be able to be imported in Open Street Map, or the open 
transport working group (SNCB is part of the strategy). And last but not 
least, the standard license they aim at is CC0.
