DOHA: The Annual General Members' Assembly of the Dutch Business Council Qatar (DBCQ) took place recently in Doha at the residence of The Netherlands ambassador, Bahia Tahzib-Lie. During the assembly, a new Executive Board was elected. Henk Jan Hoogendoorn stepped down as chairman, and Robert Willem Cats has been elected as the new chairman. Matthijs Westra, Valérie Pans, Marieke Witkamp, Freek Matheij and Nick Leissner are the new members of the Executive Board.
Emphasis was on the continued collaboration between the DBCQ and the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands, based on numerous past initiatives and the upcoming events for this year, such as, for example, the organisation of the Global Money Week in Qatar.
Ambassador Tahzib-Lie commented: 'I am proud that Dutch companies are big investors in Qatar. It's great to see that Qatar and the Netherlands connect, inspire and complement each other across a wide range of sectors, including food security, energy, infrastructure, sports, education, and healthcare. We are thrilled that DBCQ has selected obesity as a theme for this year. Together with the Dutch businesses, I look forward to contributing to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
'The synergies between the two countries emerge in the mutual drive for diversification: both relatively small nations with abundant gas reserves that foster an open economy beyond the finite fossil wealth.We experience an increase in diversity of Dutch companies and affiliates operating in Qatar, and aspire to support new arrivals, provide a diversity of networking opportunities, and share relevant information to keep the Dutch-Qatari business community in Qatar up to speed, the new DBCQ chairman commented.
