Business platform Southeast Asia


We are transforming the virtual mission page to an online business platform!

In the coming months the platform continues to provide local market information and provides you the possibility to interact with business partners in Southeast Asia.

In January you will receive an invitation for an online meeting in which we will present our plans.

In the meantime, the online sessions are available on the platform. Until 4 January 2021, registered participants can review sessions of the virtual mission here.

A summary of this mission (in Dutch) can be read here.
