Om Nederland op de kaart te zetten als handelsland slaan KLM, ING, MKB-Nederland en BZ de handen ineen. Samen met de Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO) vormen zij het Oranje Handelsmissiefonds. Het fonds schreef dit jaar voor de 4e keer een wedstrijd uit waarmee ondernemers een handelsmissie én de kennis en het netwerk van de organisatoren kunnen winnen.Vorig jaar was het bedrijf Tony's Chocolonely een van de winnaars. Zij wilden met een handelsmissie naar de VS mee om hun merk daar op de kaart te zetten. Een droomvoorbeeld, volgens Bart. ‘Ze maken niet alleen chocola, maar gaan het gevecht aan met slavernij.’
Ook is hij enthousiast over het Delftse bedrijfje Octatube, dat onder meer de glasconstructie voor de buitenkant van de Rotterdamse Markthal heeft ontworpen. Een flinke technische uitdaging. ‘Onvoorstelbaar wat zij doen met glas. Zo’n innovatieve toepassing in bovendien een prestigieus project is prachtige promotie voor Nederlandse handel.’ Het bedrijf bouwt nu aan een Europees netwerk, te beginnen met Duitsland.

Transavia is starting up operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. 30-09-2016
The Dutch low cost carrier Transavia is starting up operations at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Beginning next summer, the airline will offer year-round service seven times a week to Munich and Eindhoven.

More and more low cost carriers want to establish service to and from Stockholm and Stockholm Arlanda Airport. Now the Dutch airline Transavia is offering seven flights a week, with three weekly flights to the German city of Munich and four to the Dutch city of Eindhoven.

“We are really pleased that Transavia has chosen Stockholm Arlanda for its new routes. Recently we have seen steady volume growth between Stockholm and the Dutch market. Eindhoven is an important destination for many companies in the Stockholm region as well as a lovely city for leisure travellers – a wonderful alternative in the Netherlands to Amsterdam. We have also seen growing demand for flights to Munich in recent years so we are very pleased that we can offer passengers a really good low cost alternative to Germany’s third largest city,” says Elizabeth Axtelius, Director of Aviation Business at Swedavia. www.swedavia.com

Global cities, trade, and Stockholm by Maria Rankka CEO Stockholm Chamber of Commerce 28-09-2016
More and more economic activity, more and more innovation and more and more growth are being concentrated to cities. Urbanization is one of the most powerful economic forces in the world.

The three most distinct traits of successful cities today are talent, trade and technology. Global cities need to have a critical mass of talented people in order to be innovative and in order to offer advanced products and services. Ability to develop talent and openness to talent is key for any city who wants to play in the cities' premier league. Openness to trade is equally important. International trade in the broadest sense of the word creates wealth, prevents conflicts and helps us stay competitive. Technology or digitalization is together with urbanization and globalization a force that totally changes the world right now. A competitive global city needs businesses that push the boundaries of technology, but it also needs a digital infrastructure and an idea about how it will be impacted by digitalization.Read more
