Netherlands Economic Mission to Indonesia 2020

On the occasion of the State Visit of Their Majesties The King and Queen of the Netherlands to Indonesia, a parallel Economic Mission will be organized to Jakarta and Surabaya, from 9 to 13 March. This mission will be led by Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, H. E. Sigrid Kaag; Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management, H. E. Cora van Nieuwenhuizen; Minister of State, H. E. Sybilla Dekker; and Vice Minister of Agriculture, Nature, and Food Quality, Mr. Jan Kees Goet.

Around 180 participants representing 130 Dutch companies and knowledge institutions will participate in the mission, focusing on five sectors: Agri & Food; Life Sciences & Health; Maritime & Integrated Coastal Zone and Water Management;  Waste Management – Circular Economy & Water Technology; and Aviation. Their programs will consist of a multitude of seminars, matchmaking, field visits, and network events to which Indonesian partners, stakeholders and experts have been invited.

Indonesia and the Netherlands have a longstanding economic relationship through mutual trade and investments. This mission aims to strengthen the existing economic relationship between the two countries, and to provide a platform for new economic opportunities.

Smart Solutions for a Sustainable Future

The Netherlands is keen to partner up with Indonesia to create smart solutions in solving global challenges. Both Indonesia and the Netherlands face common challenges in various fields, such as the impact of climate change on coastal protection and water resources, the accessibility of healthcare, the shift to a circular economy, and an increasing pressure on food production systems. This mission will give opportunities for companies and institutions between the two countries to exchange knowledge and expertise in finding smart and innovative solutions together.
