Flanders was not cashing in on the war, the minister insisted, but investing in "peace tourism".

I'm thrilled they care enough about preservation, renovation and propagation of these items and places to be willing to invest in it. It would be a great sadness if these monuments simply fade away.

Clearly written, unfortunately, by someone who appears to know very little about the topic. I may be being unfair.
