[en] The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) was established on 25 July 1921. Some years later, in 1935, three additional sections were added to the BLEU Convention: on financial and monetary matters, a common trade regime and a “special revenue community” with specific excise duties. In 1963, the provisions of the BLEU were revised following the entry into force of the European Economic Community (EEC) and Benelux. The two countries renewed the Convention in a new enhanced version on 18 December 2002, reflecting a determination to extend their collaboration beyond the economic and monetary field and paving the way for closer political and administrative cooperation, especially in the areas of justice, citizenship, health and cross-border synergies in the Greater Region, and creating a framework for dialogue within the European Union. For one century now, Belgium and Luxembourg have enjoyed a strong bilateral partnership, one that has been marked by various difficulties and tensions but has been deepened and renewed over the years. The centenary of the BLEU, which occurs in a context beset by unprecedented challenges and uncertainties for the Greater Region, Europe and the international community, is an opportunity for discussion and reflection on the lessons that can be learned from the past, the current situation and prospects for the future of this union.

L'Union économique belgo-luxembourgeoise (UEBL) a été conclue le 25 juillet 1921. La Convention y relative est complétée en 1935 par un volet financier et monétaire, un régime commercial commun et une « communauté spéciale de recettes » en matière d’accises spécifiques. En 1963, les dispositions de l’UEBL évoluent suite à l’entrée en vigueur de la Communauté économique européenne (CEE) et du Benelux. Souhaitant amplifier leur coopération au-delà des domaines économiques et monétaires, le 18 décembre 2002, la deux pays renouvellent la Convention sous une forme enrichie, ouvrant ainsi de nouvelles perspectives pour une coopération politique et administrative renforcée notamment en matière de justice, de citoyenneté, de la santé et des synergies transfrontalières dans la Grande Région, ainsi que pour la concertation au sein de l’Union européenne. Durant un siècle, la Belgique et le Luxembourg ont abouti à un partenariat bilatéral solide, ponctué de certaines difficultés et tensions, mais approfondi et renouvelé au fil des années. Le centenaire de l’UEBL, qui a lieu dans un contexte grand-régional européen et international émaillé de défis et d’incertitudes sans précédent, invite au débat et à la réflexion sur les enseignements du passé, le bilan actuel et les perspectives d’avenir de cette union.
