Turkey and the Netherlands have a longstanding and strong relationship that goes back almost 400 years. Next year four centuries of diplomatic relations will be celebrated during an intensive program of economic, cultural and people-to-people activities in both countries.

Positive economic developments and the promising potential of the Turkish economy on the one hand, and the strong international tradition of the Netherlands and world class knowledge and experience in a number of sectors on the other hand, make the two countries a perfect fit. Two years ago in 2009 ING,the Association FME-CWM and Fenedex launched a successful program 'Holland-Turkey: Investment & Trade'. In a series of events the three organizing parties shared the opportunities for enhanced business co-operation and partnership with Dutch and Turkish entrepreneurs. This program reached out to a large group of companies that were interested in new bilateral business opportunities and many new contacts have been established.

The Dutch-Turkish partnership is sustainable in many ways. In recent years new initiatives have been taken in a number of economic sectors including medical technology, maritime industry, agri-food, sustainable energy, logistics & transport, and environmental technology.
Different clusters of industries are implementing a joint strategy to enhance bilateral co-operation.

Building on this successful approach ING, the Association FME-CWM and Fenedex will organize a symposium ‘Holland and Turkey: a sustainable partnership’ on 21 June 2011 in Rotterdam, to enhance bilateral economic relations, to support a further strengthening of existing and new relations and to share business and governmental knowledge, experience and expertise.

Target group: Dutch and Turkish entrepreneurs (exporters, importers, investors and economic partners) with experience in the field of international business.

The preliminary program includes:

Focus sectors
Medical technology, maritime, port development, infrastructure & logistics, environmental technology, sustainable energy, trade.
