Economic Mission Dutch government to DR Congo and Rwanda

The economic mission offers an excellent opportunity to Dutch companies and knowledge institutions to build relationships with potential business partners and local authorities in DR Congo and Rwanda. The program provides collective and individual matchmaking, seminars, trade dinners, network events, and where possible also participation in discussions with relevant members of government. Dutch Companies and knowledge institutes can also use this mission to sign contracts or Memoranda of Understanding in the presence of the Minister or Secretary of State.
Agri-business is one of the main themes defined as promising sector in those countries. Particular attention will be paid to dairy produce, potatoes, seeds, poultry, slaughterhouses and processors.
