The European Central Bank (ECB) has opened its first office in Brussels.
"It's a very small office, staffed by two people – a manager and an assistant," an ECB spokesman told CentralBanking.com.
"It is simply going to be used as an additional resource for the ECB in a city to which staff members are frequently going on business trips," he added.
Jean-Pierre Vidal was revealed as head of the new office in Brussels. Before accepting this position he was deputy head of the Monetary Policy Strategy
