The March mission: Uniting Water, Energy and the Circular Economy

Dubai, March 17, 2022 – From the 21st to the 24th of March 2022, the trade mission to the Netherlands Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai and Abu Dhabi will be taking place. The mission will be about integrated and sustainable future-proof solutions for water, energy and the circular economy.

The March mission: Uniting Water, Energy and the Circular Economy

The focus of the second trade mission will centre around integrated and sustainable future-proof solutions for water, energy and the circular economy and includes a visit to Expo 2020 Dubai. To address these important topics in an integrated way, representatives from the Netherlands, the UAE and the wider Gulf region will come together to explore smart and connected solutions. By sharing our insights and learnings, we can rethink how to implement integrated and sustainable solutions to counteract the scarcity of precious resources in the face of growing demands.

This high-level trade mission is led by Dutch Minister of Infrastructure and Water Management Mark Harbers and VNO-NCW chairperson Ingrid Thijssen.

Economic ties between the Netherlands, the UAE, and the rest of the Gulf region are strong. This mission aims to further strengthen this relationship by providing the Dutch delegation of public and private organisations ample opportunity to meet new partners for solving global challenges and deepen relations with existing partners in the Gulf and beyond. The mission also presents a unique opportunity to discuss common challenges and work together on the Sustainable Development Goals.

50 Dutch companies specialised in sustainable future-proof solutions for water, energy and the circular economy will be travelling to the United Arab Emirates. Holland Circular Hotspot and the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) will host the parts of the programme focusing on circularity and water management.
