Recap VIP Program Japan to the Netherlands

We look back on an enthusiastic and highly engaged VIP Program Japan, during GreenTech 2024, taking place 11-13 June in Amsterdam! A group of renowned growers, entrepreneurs, government officials and researchers visited the Netherlands for GreenTech and got fully immersed in a program that spanned the entire horticultural sector. This very passionate delegation had specific requests for collaboration and sought concrete connections with Dutch businesses.

One of the delegates mentioned that he has been visiting the Netherlands for 20 years but has never had the opportunity to get to know the entire horticultural ecosystem as thoroughly as he did last week. A heartfelt compliment to the Dutch horticultural sector for their carefully crafted program, fully packed with company visits, matchmaking, networking and knowledge exchange! 
We see many collaborative opportunities for innovation between Japan and the Netherlands. After this successful VIP Program, valuable contacts have been made, bringing us a significant step closer on the Road2Osaka, the journey towards Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai!

We thank all our partners for hosting our guests, and of course we thank delegates for their profound interest in Dutch horticulture. Let’s cultivate the future, together on CommonGround!
