"We are currently in the process of establishing contacts in the Dutch market. Doing so we made a business trip to Netherlands with Mr. Armando da Cruz, to present our product "Youbeep" to retailers from Plus and Coop. They liked the concept and we feel that we can have an opportunity to trial and sell our product during the next months.
I would like to express my gratitude to the Chamber and to give a special thank you to Mr. Armando da Cruz, board member of the Dutch-Portuguese Chamber, for supporting us on this journey and for helping us through his network in Netherlands. We believe this support can help us open doors and move faster. It will create strong relationships that could become profitable for all in the future and can help future Chamber members to follow the same path."

"What an experience to go to college, meet entrepreneurs and the public sector of Lisbon and the municipality of Barreiro, help a museum and have lunch with the Dutch Ambassador at his residence. I came back motivated and full of ideas. The Chamber made it an unforgettable experience with their network and connections in all different segments. Thank you Dutch Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and TIAS Business School for these enriching moments".

“Our company SAPEC makes use of the expertise of the Chamber to find investment leads for a big Port infrastructure project near Lisbon, called Blue Atlantic. The collaboration has been very pleasant. With a cooperative and proactive spirit contacts have been promoted with the right feeling for leads that could be potentially interested in the project. For one of our projects a very good solution has been identified. It goes without saying that SAPEC will keep seeking the advice of the Chamber to promote the projects we have in hands.”

"Along 2014 the Chamber supported a leading Dutch corporate company in the manufacturing industry to verify the possibility of setting up a factory in Portugal. Possible locations, subsidies and employment opportunities were analysed and local visits took place.

We received the following reference:

"We have been working successfully together for many years and in 2014 Marjon and her team provided an excellent local support for a complex and large-scale investment project"

"Getting acquainted with the Portuguese (business) culture was a true eye-opener to me. Portuguese people are internationally orientated, speak English fluently, are proud of their country and company and have a true entrepreneurial attitude. The guidance and support by the Dutch - Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the preparation towards our company visit to Heineken / SCC was tremendous. A life richening experience."

Arno Storm |APM Terminals Rotterdam - Execution Manager Operations

Great city, wonderful program and very well organised! Thank you Marjon and colleagues.

We obtained good contacts to sell our current product. The information we received also made us think about our future strategic development."
