August 15, 2016 The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands was one of the official sponsors of the Profood, Propack and Agri Biz exhibition at the BMICH in Colombo on the 12th, 13th and 14th of August this year. According to the organisers, more than 25,000 visitors attended the exhibition of whom over 2.000 were invited by businesses. The Embassy noticed that the exhibition was being visited by a variety of interested people varying from from farmers to the government ministers. It was an excellent opportunity to promote the Dutch Agro-food sector and the other programs such as, PUM and NUFFIC.
July 1, 2016 Last week, Dutch experts on urban planning and water management came to Sri Lanka to assist the Megapolis Planning Project Office. They explored Colombo and looked into possible improvements of several landmarks, such as the water canals and the historical Fort Area. During a debriefing, the first results were shared and the Megapolis Planning Project Office was happy with the recommendations given. The mission team consisted of Jan van Schoonhoven (Rijkswaterstaat), Robert-Jan Ruifrok (Dutch Ministry on Infrastructure and Environment), Oshani Perera (International Institute on Sustainable Development) and Robert Kruijt (Landscape Architect).
