The Economic and Commercial Wing of the Embassy of India is hosting a virtual meeting to connect Indian exporters with Dutch importers. The event will take place on Monday, April the 26th from 11.00 to 12.30. According to the First Secretary of the Embassy of India, the event will be a nice opportunity to learn about the possibilities offered by India.
With trade events not currently taking place due to the pandemic, Mrs. Mrinalini Kaur Sapra, First Secretary (E&C), Embassy of India, states they’ve decided to host a virtual meeting between Indian sellers and Dutch buyers: “The Economic and Commercial Wing of the Embassy of India, as part of its activities, conducts outreach activities to bring businesses in India and the Netherlands in touch with each other. Due to the current pandemic, there are have not been any trade delegations physically visiting the Netherlands from India and vice-versa and there have not been any large trade fairs. The option that is left has been to meet ‘virtually’. In the ‘Virtual Buyer Seller Meeting’ concept, trade organizations in India select Indian companies in a particular sector on the basis of their performance and capabilities and present them to potential importers/buyers in the Netherlands. Thus, the Dutch companies can get in contact with good Indian companies through the virtual medium.”
“As such, we will be organizing a Virtual Buyer Seller Meeting on Monday, April 26, 2021, from 11.00 to 12.30 hours CET. It’s a good opportunity to learn more about the possibilities offered by India and to meet new companies in India. Dutch importers are invited to join. Dutch agri-tech based companies can also interact with Indian exporters or other companies in the agri-sector to explore synergies,” Sapra says.
So far, interest has been pretty good. “Both response and interest have been good so far. Registration for the event is still open, however. Dutch companies can register for the event by sending a mail, after which they will be sent a link to join the meeting. There is also a plan to release an e-catalogue of all the participants from both sides. Dutch companies that are interested can also be included in the catalogue.”
Events like this have been organized for other markets as well: “Although this specific event is for Dutch importers, similar events have been carried out in different countries like Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and more. It is our endeavour to bring Dutch and Indian companies in contact with each other. We would consider this event to be a success if good contacts and mutually beneficial business relations are established.” Sapra concludes.
To register for the event, send a mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
