On Thursday, 11 April 2019, the SDBP organised an event with the Slovenian Embassy in the Netherlands which was attended by 25 representatives of Slovenian and Dutch companies, representatives of the Dutch Enterprise Agency (RVO) and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The event was aimed at launching SDBP activities in the Netherlands,  bringing together Dutch and Slovenian business entities and serving as a business network for the exchange of expertise and business opportunities between entrepreneurs operating between the two countries.

Ambassador Štiglic emphasised in the introductory speech the important role of such initiatives, which help to promote business association between Slovenia and the Netherlands and the internationalization of Slovenian companies.

The work of the SDBP was presented by Marc van Rijnsoever, our President, Karin van Rooyen-Winkelman, Honorary Consul of the Republic of Slovenia in the Netherlands, and Matjaž Zupančič-Tičo, former State Secretary in the Government Office for Development and European Cohesion Policy.

The event was enriched by the vocal group Gallina from Slovenia, who impressed the audience. The event ended with a party with Slovenian dishes.
