With the new year well underway, it is time to give you more detailed information
about the events we have in mind for you, our ADB members, in the coming months.
Unfortunately we had to postpone our planned networking event with the Belgian
Luxembourg Business Group (BLBG) in February. The event itself however is still
firmly on our agenda, as we would like to experience whether or not joint events
with the BLBG are adding value in the eyes of our members. We are currently looking
at a date in April.
A number of you will attend the networking event with the SMA (Singapore
Manufacturers’ Association), organized by the Dutch Embassy on 3 March. The plan is
to have a get together with a Singapore business group/association from time to
time. The next one will be with the association for Small and Medium Enterprises
(SME), mid year.
On 14 March we will hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Hollandse Club,
at which we would like to see as many of you as possible. During the AGM we will
confirm the composition of the ADB board for next year and this is a good opportunity
for any of our members to express an interest to play an active role within the ADB,
in the board or otherwise. If such interest exists, please contact one of the current
On 17 March we are scheduling a visit to one of the container ships of P&O Nedlloyd
in the Singapore harbour. A previous visit, a couple of years ago, was a huge success.
Look for the details elsewhere in this magazine.
The traditional black tie dinner will take place in May or June, before the summer
break. You will hear more about this in the coming months.
I hope to meet with a lot of you during one of the upcoming events!
