Verenigde Staten: Important Announcements!

Chamber Logo
December 2016 

Dear Members & Friends, 

The year 2016 came and went fast; media-rich, turbulent and somewhat "a-typical". Through all of that we continued to see a development that has been steady: an increase in business between the USA and The Netherlands. Specifically the South Eastern area of the US was an area of focus for Dutch companies looking to expand overseas. The welcoming business environment, the easy to navigate infrastructure and the quality of life now makes over 145 Dutch companies call the South East their American home.
For the Chamber it was a great year; Events were very well attended, business between members flourished and we welcomed 16 new companies to our network. With the quickly changing political environment and the uncertainty about the consequences for international business there is a big opportunity to link with each other and vet questions, challenges and opportunities, so we can grow our businesses.
We are looking forward to 2017 and have planned a year filled with events and topics related to the newest developments in the US, The Netherlands and the World in general. It will be great seeing you there. For each you will receive an invitation by email.
With the end of 2016  upon us, we wish you a very happy and enjoyable Holiday season and a healthy start to 2017!

Best Regards,

Coen Vrolijk
Chris Hopkins

News from NABC Chairman           
"The Netherlands American Business Council (NABC), of which NACCSE is a founding member, is a network of independent Dutch- American Chambers of Commerce, Business Councils, and local Chapters of the NAF-Biz. In its first full year of operation NABC set up a website, provided coordination for its member base on numerous events and activities and allows its members to exchange best practices on a monthly basis, creating unity in the group. In the yearly meeting in Washington DC in September, with the Economic and Trade counsellors of the Netherlands Embassy, the Consul Generals and the Honorary Consuls a terrific coordination of business and professional aspects is accomplished. The NABC-group is now looking to expand its visibility through various (electronic) efforts, and to expand the member base in those areas of the USA where coverage increases its own effectiveness and those of its membership." - Jan Willem A. Smeulers, Chairman NABC
