Trade Missions 2018

In the autumn of 2018 we organize two outgoing trade missions. Participating in this mission is an excellent opportunity to get to know companies and organizations and to give your business a boost. We work closely with various parties including our own WTC network, embassies, consulates and other trade-promoting organizations.

The trade missions are multisectoral and both for large and small entrepreneurs.
The goal is market orientation, knowledge acquisition and matchmaking.


Trade mission Sweden & Finland

7-11 OCTOBER 2018

Sweden is relatively close to the Netherlands, one has a similar way of doing business, mentality and sense of humor. Finland is a bit further away from the Netherlands but the way of doing business is reliable, and the Finn is direct and polite. One does not go ice overnight, and likes to build a reliable, long-term business relationship. Both countries have mature markets that are open to international contacts, new products and technologies.

The organization is in the hands of World Trade Center North Netherlands. The supplier in Sweden and in Finland is the Swedish consultancy firm Market Link Scandinavia AB, with director Callette Terhaerdt Losic and the local partner in Finland.

Trade mission France

11-15 NOVEMBER 2018

France is the 2nd market in Europe, the 3rd economy in Europe. At the same time, the Netherlands is doing relatively little with France. The Netherlands is a short distance from France, yet it is only the fourth trading partner. Important economic sectors in France are information technologies, agro-food, car industry and logistics.

The organization is in the hands of World Trade Center North Netherlands. The performer in France is B & M France. Benedicte Boné and Michèle van Hasselt-Guibert are two of French origin who live in the Netherlands for years. With French as their native language they can support you in the contact with the French companies.

Following a personal intake interview in the Netherlands, in which your company, products / services and your wishes for the market are mapped out, a job description with search profile is drawn up.

We trace and select interesting and interested discussion partners for you and your company. These may be trading partners in the form of agents, distributors, suppliers, customers or importers. Your company is introduced in the local language to potential discussion partners. If there is sufficient interest from the market, appointments are scheduled and you travel to the current country and visit the interested interlocutors on location. Everything is prepared in detail so that you can fully focus on your conversation with potential partners.

Trade mission
We prepare and support market orientation trips for trade delegations. Together with 6-15 other companies you travel to the current country. Here you will receive an individual matchmaking program with appointments. We ensure that you get the most out of your trip; business contacts, networking and exchange of experience and information.


For these trade missions you can receive a 50% subsidy from the Province of Fryslân, Groningen or Drenthe, only if you meet the conditions.
