The Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment will organise an economic trade mission from April 9 to 13 to Brazil. Minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen will be leading the Dutch delegation that will visit the cities São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Holland Marine House Brazil is involved in organising the maritime part of the economic trade mission. The purpose of the visit to Brazil is to strengthen the cooperative relationships with the Brazilian government and to stimulate the actions of the Dutch business community in relation to the Brazilian market.
The good bilateral relationship between the Netherlands and Brazil dates from the state visit of President Lula to the Netherlands in April 2008. During this visit an MoU was signed on cooperation in the area of ports, maritime transport and logistics. Since the state visit, many visits of Brazilian and Dutch ministers took place.
On Tuesday April 10, the 'Forum Brazil - Holland' on Multimodal Transport & Logistics and Shipbuilding will take place in São Paulo. Both the Dutch as well as a Brazilian Minister will be present. Several key note speakers will share their knowledge. The delegation will also visit trade fair Intermodal. On Thursday April 12, a roundtable session with focus on inland navigation, innovation and current offshore projects will take place in Rio de Janeiro. Minister Schultz van Haegen will be present.
