The LDBA’s annual Trade Mission to the Netherlands took place from the 17th to the 23rd of May, 2015. The Delegation this year consisted of 15 members, 5 spouses and many resident friends of the LDBA. Foremost among the members this year, was the ex-Commercial Attache at the Netherlands Embassy in Beirut, Mr. Tarek Ouerghi, accompanied by his spouse Amale, who came all the way from Tunisia to be with us, for old times’ sake! The PLMA was the main attraction for most members, other than the scheduled individual business meetings with Dutch counterparts. And the other main attraction was, as usual, the match-making business reception hosted by the Chargee d'Affaires of the Lebanese Embassy in the Hague, H.E. Abir Ali, at the Embassy’s Residence in Wassenaar, on Tuesday the 19th of May, in conjunction with the NCH (the Netherlands Council for Trade Promotion). The reception was attended by a large number of Dutch business persons, as well as Dutch officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Ambassadors of the MENA Region, as well as the Netherlands Ambassador to Lebanon, H.E. Hester Somsen. On Monday the 18th, the Delegation had headed to Tilburg, to visit the Trappe Brewery, a visit arranged by Mr. Jean Sarkis. They were given a very interesting tour of the premises, and were then invited to a gourmet lunch, before returning to Amsterdam. On Wednesday the 20th, a Dinner was hosted by the Delegation at Anna’s, a charming Dutch restaurant in the heart of one of the... ahem... “business districts” of Amsterdam. There the delegation was joined by ex-Ambassador and friend of the LDBA, H.E. Hero de Boer. See you all next year!
