I realized the potential of being part of the Chamber the day I was invited by the team to present ideas and go forward with initiatives, in which I had already thought about but, I have kept in a box - ideas that existed, but were not being developed. I was encouraged to materialize marketing operations that, in no other way, probably would never become more than a mere desire.
It is a privilege to have a support system like the Dutch Portuguese Chamber of Commerce, based on an organization of truly interested, dynamic and open spirit people, that help its members to take the step forward to leverage its businesses, which in our case is related to nautical tourism.
My company Portipraia Lda produces and sells chocolates. They are called “Chocolates of Life” and are certified organic and vegan. However, we felt ready to expand to other markets and contacted the Dutch Portuguese Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber helped us managing contacts in the Netherlands and created a relationship of excellence. The working method was done in full transparency which was very good because I was able to follow the whole process.
I would like to thank all the work done by Mrs Florbela Cruz and Mr Robin Wetzels, who have been a real help! I’m confident to continue working with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in the future.
The added value of membership of the Chamber started briefly after my arrival in Portugal 2,5 years ago. Having access to a vast network of experts in different fields. Via the contacts in the Chamber I got in touch with areas I needed at that time.
For example: a real estate agency, investors in hotels, project developers in Algarve, discussing a joint promotional activity with a FMCG company, access to other business networks.
It is a continuous source of inspiration: you exchange expertise, information and knowledge: giving and taking. If you are active it can really benefit your business!
The companies Industrial Cool Solutions (PT) and FAS Technologie (NL), were brought together via the intermediary of the chamber in order to market the wetting agent product F-500 in Portugal. The Chamber was also of great help for making contacts to start the F-500 fire extinguish product on the Portuguese market. The contacts were coordinated by Robin Wetzels, Project Manager of the Chamber. Due to the contacts of the Chamber, we managed to realise a flying start, resulting in a good total score during the AlgaveSafe fair, 24-26 of May, at Portimão. Robin also arranged contacts with the relevant authorities, that are currently in the process of finding solutions for the wood fires.
Thank you Câmara de Comércio Portugal Holanda for your intermediary.
“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.”
Totalprotex sells workwear and PPE all over Europe. After deciding that we wanted to start local sales support in Portugal for the Portuguese market we contacted CCPH. The Chamber helped us to get our proposition published, managed contacts and handled local questions. CCPH provides services and handle tasks like getting financial reports, provide background information and smoothen the acquisition/relationship process.
We’re looking forward to continue to work with CCPH!
"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".

"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:
