BWCC President & CEO Walt Townshend was invited by Dutch Ambassador Henne Schuwer to join in a networking session for members of the Netherlands/Flanders Economic Mission representing multi-national small and medium-sized businesses, along with start-ups, in the fields of financial technologies, cybersecurity and smart logistics. Also present were similar companies from the greater Washington area.

The event was held at Ambassador Schuwer’s residence and featured remarks by the Ambassador, Katie Moussouris, Chief Policy Officer, Hacker-One and Marten van den Berg, Dutch Vice-Minister for Foreign Trade.

The BWCC has a long association with the Netherlands, principally through the service of former Board Chairman, Frans van Wagenberg. Recently Mr. Van Wagenberg arranged a meeting with a representative from the Netherlands/American Chamber of Commerce, which has affiliates in several U. S. cities, including Washington, D.C.
