A special welcome to our Nordic colleagues and partners present here tonight and to the Moderator of Circular Economy Summit 2020, Andrea Orsag from Mission C. During this Summit participants will build new and strong relations towards circularity on all levels, create business opportunities between Nordic and Dutch companies in the field of circular solutions and green technology and exchange knowledge and experience. We are also very pleased to continue the co-operation with the Swedish Embassy and to continue the collaboration on Women in Tech so successfully initiated by Tech-Bridge Sweden – the Netherlands in November 2019.
