ICC Netherlands Seminar: Trade Controls; current challenges and critical issues from a US and EU perspective
Thursday 17 October 2019, Malietoren, Bezuidenhoutseweg 12, The Hague (13.00-17.30 hrs.)
Over the years international sanctions and export controls have become an import factor on the global economic playing field urging businesses to adapt their commercial strategy and priorities while implementing more robust compliance programs. With new guidance released in recent months from both OFAC (US Treasury), the EU Commission and national regulators exporters are now reviewing their compliance programs and sometimes go further and implement even stricter rules. We are thus very honoured to have a representative from the US Treasury with us who will speak on the new guidelines and recent enforcement actions.
This seminar will provide an overview and update of relevant policy developments and critical issues from an EU and US trade controls perspective and show the practical consequences and challenges of export controls and sanctions for parties involved in the trade of strategic goods.
The Summit will be held at the KIT Royal Institute, on 23rd October at 10:30AM.
The participants will be C-level management and entrepreneurs from the entire South Eastern Europe (Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Serbia, Romania, Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo and Bulgaria).
A limited number of guests are permitted. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact me.
They are also planning to have an "40 under 40" event in Toronto in December, and New York in April 2020.

The Foundation Bevrijding Brabantse Wal and the Canadian Government organise the 5th edition of the Memorial Day of Canada in the Netherlands. The Canadian Government assigned the Canadian Cemetery in Bergen Op Zoom as the main place to commemorate Canadian soldiers who passed away during the war.
Foreign guests will take part in the commemoration, which offers a special edition for the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation. This event will be the most prominent commemoration in the area of the Brabantse Wal.
The Brabantse Wal Liberation Foundation (SBBW) wants to carry out a number of projects in connection with local WW2 history. One is the construction of a Sherman tank, in cooperation with the Decorbouw Groot Arsenaal Foundation. These medium-heavy tanks were used by regiments such as the Canadian South Alberta Regiment. This regiment, together with the Lincoln & Welland Regiment, played an important role in the liberation of the city and region. On October 27, 1944, the tanks of this regiment rolled up into the Grote Markt of Bergen op Zoom. The Brabantse Wal Liberation Foundation wants to make use of the replica Sherman tank for the liberation activities in 2019. Purchasing a real Sherman tank is not realistic due to the logistical and operational challenges it entails. The intention is that the replica, which is indistinguishable from the real thing, will be used during the liberation parade on 26 October. The tank will also be used for the Vierschaar Foundation’s SUPERSUM show and for other staged projects and events.
In addition to the use of the replica tank for activities related to liberation and culture, efforts are also being made to involve schools. One of the objectives of the Brabantse Wal Liberation Foundation is to include the Battle of the Scheldt in the curriculum of primary and secondary schools. In the coming years, schools will be focusing more on informing pupils about the WW2 history of the region, and a link will be made with the contemporary experience of the themes of peace and freedom. The replica of the tank is intended to trigger young people to take an interest in the freedom which was fought for so hard.
For the actual realisation of the tank (including the financing), contact was made with interested parties from both the Netherlands and Canada.

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.
