What does Quebec have to offer? What do you need to know if you want to start a business there? Are there particular industries that need Dutch skills and technical know-how?
There are many places to look for help, both here in the Netherlands as well as in Canada. How can you find the help you need?
In the spring this year, NCCC member Houser Henry & Syron interviewed a number of CEO's and Directors, including some of our members, for their Mid-Market Report . The results are in.
Will there be a return to business as usual? Many interviewees noted their efforts to diversify their supply chains (many focusing on increasing the localisation of their supply network). Those with multiple sites improved their inventory management and procurement systems but will localisation continue? Will leaders continue to invest in new technology and automation? While some clearly expect that the opening of borders will revive some face-to-face activities, it is also clear that digital will remain a key part of the customer and partner interaction. But what will be the right balance?
Find the answers to these questions and more in this online discussion.

The magic of the northern lights, idyllic expansive landscapes, and impressive panoramic views of the Arctic. Kunsthal Rotterdam will be showing examples of the majestic art of Canadian painting between 1910 and 1940 – immensely popular back home, but hardly known in the Netherlands.
‘Magnetic North’ presents over eighty magical paintings and thirty sketches by the Canadian modernists. At the beginning of the twentieth century, these artists moved away from the crowded cities to settle deep in Canadian nature. Through experimenting, they were searching for a new visual language to match the way in which Canadian society was expanding and changing at that time. The members of the Group of Seven, a famous collective of landscape painters, as well as the artist Tom Thomson who was their source of inspiration, created an almost mythical, exalted image of Canada in their paintings. Depicting an uncultivated territory, they ignored the reality of the country’s original inhabitants and its rapidly growing population and industrialisation.

At the heart of the exhibition, photographic and video material puts these paintings in a critical context. Seen from the perspective of the First Nations, this documentation offers a framework for the historical narratives that are missing from these famous paintings. Also part of the exhibition is the work of Emily Carr, who was a contemporary of these artists and known for her paintings that did pay attention to the native communities of Canada in the early twentieth century.
For this exhibition, Kunsthal Rotterdam has entered into an international collaboration with the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Canada, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and Shirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany.
The NCCC will be organising an event during the exhibition. Dates and details will depend on the prevailing Corona rules nearer the time.

After consulting the Advisory Board, and other key stakeholders of the horticulture technology industry, Greentech have decided to change the dates and the concept of GreenTech Amsterdam to GreenTech Live & Online on 28 – 30 September this year.
The full physical show of GreenTech Amsterdam will be rescheduled to Tuesday 14 – 16 June 2022.
GreenTech Live & Online: 28 - 30 September 2021
The horticulture market is thriving. Knowledge sharing and innovations are key to stay on top of the wave. To provide these insights we successfully organised a variety of online events during the pandemic period for our community. This resulted in reaching new audiences, increasing engagement and thus expanding our global community.
Therefore, instead of our full physical show we organize the alternative GreenTech Live & Online, in blended format (both physical and digital). The focus is on global reach for this event.
More details will follow.

Expanding global markets, especially in emerging countries, offer business opportunities for all, including fraudsters and members of organized crime. Fraud in international trade is a risk with costly consequences for all parties involved. Money laundering, the use of containers to commit fraud as well as piracy and hijacking are all part of elaborate fraud schemes. Fraud affects traders, shippers, logistic companies, insurers, banks and all other parties involved in international trade, transport and banking transactions. It is of vital importance to identify misuse and fraud before it happens, before documents are submitted or payments are made.
This full day seminar covers in detail the different manifestations of fraud in international trade. The experts will clarify how to recognize red flags and criminal behaviour in advance in order to avoid losses. In doing so, they are going to address the risks for all parties involved and explain how to minimize those risks. How can duped businesses and private parties recover their assets and what can businesses do to trace fraudsters? These and more questions will be answered during this full day seminar.

ICC Netherlands Centennial Conference

Expo 2022 Floriade Almere will be the 7th International Horticultural Expo in the Netherlands. For six months, the attention to the theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ will be focused on the cities of the future. Visitors will have a unique and meaningful experience: during the expo they will be invited to ‘explore, touch and change’.
This expo will be the start of a new city district close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands called Almere. Almost everything that will be built for the exhibition will become a permanent part of the legacy of Almere. The structures will remain and become part of the community for future activities.
The Earth has seven billion inhabitants and growing, and more than fifty percent live in cities. By 2050, this percentage will have increased to nearly seventy percent. With continued and relentless urbanisation, we have no option but to look for new ways to keep our cities safe, healthy and attractive and to find a better balance between ‘grey’ and ‘green’ infrastructure. We invite the world to join us and to contribute to our theme: Growing Green Cities.
Within this context, four sub-themes are explored:
Green: Parks – vertical green on buildings and green structures make cities more attractive and resilient;
Food:Food habits, -production, -waste, -safety and food security solutions;
Health:The contribution of green structures to a healthy living environment as well as thecontribution made by green spaces to the physical and mental vitality of the citizens;
Energy:Finding solutions to address sustainable energy, heat stress and climate adaptation, as well as the contribution of green spaces for a liveable city.
Food production plays a major role in the green city of the future. The question is, what role can agriculture and horticulture play in accelerating this vision? The Netherlands is the second largest food producer worldwide, which is special given its small area for growing. This makes the Netherlands a hotspot for potential agricultural and horticultural innovations.
Floriade will open its doors for six months from: April-October 2022.
