EN - In 2005, after lengthy negotiations, an agreement was concluded between Belgium and the Netherlands concerning the Western Scheldt. The river would be deepened so that the largest sea-faring vessels could now reach Antwerp, and at the same time the natural world in the area would be restored. Nine years later the agreement has still not been honoured by the Dutch and an unprecedented battle of opinions and counter-opinions about the restoration project continues to rage.
