Dutch companies to participate in waterways conclave in Dibrugarh

The Netherlands Embassy and the Netherlands Business Support Offices (NBSO) in India has announced the participation of a Dutch mission comprising a delegation of 8 world leading Dutch companies at the Waterways Conclave 2022, reports The Sentinel Assam.
The delegation led by the Chief Representative-cum-Trade & Investment Commissioner of the Netherlands Business Support Offices in India, Amlan Bora, comprises a diverse group of companies that represent the Dutch manufacturing, dredging, maritime logistics, design & consultancy and port operating industries.
Waterways Conclave 2022, an event of the Ministry of Ports, Waterways & Shipping of the Government of India, will be held on April 11- 12 at Football Ground, Chowkidingee, in Dibrugarh. “I am extremely happy to be leading a delegation of 8 Dutch companies to the Waterways Conclave 2022 in Dibrugarh. For most companies in the delegation, the east part of India has so far remained the unexplored region. Companies like Port of Rotterdam, Broekman Logistics, Vopak, APM Terminals, Boskalis, Royal IHC are all for the first time in this region through this conclave. The Netherlands and India are strong partners in the broader maritime sector, and this has been manifested in a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) first signed in 2008 between the Ministries of Shipping of India and the Ministry of Infrastructure & Water of the Netherlands, which will shortly be renewed. By being present at this conclave, many companies want to explore the new opportunities in coastal and inland logistics in North-Eastern region of India and its potential in opening up new markets in South and Southeast Asia.” said Bora.
Highlighting the importance of North-East to the Netherlands, Bora further said, “The East and North-East is becoming a region where we see opportunities to develop the partnership between India and The Netherlands to newer and higher levels.
NBSOs, are trade offices of the Government of India in foreign countries and we have at this moment 22 offices across 11 countries. We are actively evaluating the possibility of opening the 23rd office in the East of India for which a scoping study is presently being undertaken. The NBSOs strive to connect Dutch businesses and investments to opportunities in India.”
