“I have been a member of the Netherlands Business Council for over 17 years and my reason for joining the Council was to meet and network with like-minded people from Dutch businesses in the GCC region. Since then, I have met great contacts, clients and friends and have been part of a vibrant business community. The NBC organizes useful, diversified and prominent events for its members and creates opportunities and business links between the UAE and the Dutch businesses.”

Overseas member, GrowArabic B.V.

“On behalf of GrowArabic, consultants in Indoor Farming, I can fully recommend joining the NBC. The NBC is very active in the region and a great support in establishing contacts with government, embassies and private sector. Especially here in the region of the Middle East connections are extremely important, so they really add value to the process. The NBC organises lots of initiatives via webinars and events for the local community of Dutch companies and clearly understands the challenges we all face. I fully appreciate their support and highly recommend becoming a member in case you are interested in doing business in this region.”
