The Embassy of Canada in The Hague, in close cooperation with the British Columbia and
Québec governments, warmly invites you to an ‘in-person’ event.

This early morning event will take place in the RAI Exhibition Centre (Amtrium Room) in
Amsterdam on Wednesday June 15th from 8:00-9:00 AM.

The collaboration between the Netherlands and Canada in the agritech sector continues to
grow. This seminar will facilitate further matchmaking between companies from British
Columbia, Québec and the Netherlands that wish to expand their business to both North America
and Europe. Please join us for detailed sector information and first-hand experience of
companies currently active in both countries.

The program will include presentations on the latest on the Canadian and Dutch agrotechnology
sector, investment opportunities, government programmes supporting the sector, new
partnerships, and key events to participate in.

The general delegate from Québec will highlight financial incentives and business support,
followed by market information by the representative of British Columbia. Several Dutch and
Canadian companies will share their own experiences of doing business in both countries.
Participants can network and raise their questions during the session and the networking
breakfast, following the seminar.
