Welcome to H.E. Ambassador Margriet Leemhuis

Setembro, 2022

Last 25 August Dutch Ambassador Margriet Leemhuis presented her credentials to the President of the Portuguese Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa. Margriet is very motivated to strengthen bilateral ties, accompany the community and get to know the country.

Margriet Leemhuis has had an impressive carreer and has had various positions at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and abroad. She was Cultural Attaché in Pretoria, Deputy Ambassador in Slovakia and the UK, and Ambassador to Mexico and Belize. She has many years of experience working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and became Ambassador to Portugal as from August 2022.

The Chamber of Commerce looks forward to a continued pleasant collaboration with the Embassy and we are honoured that the Ambassador has accepted our invitation to succeed former Ambassador Nienke Trooster as Honorary Chairwoman of the Chamber. 

We wish Margriet and her family luck in their future endeavors in Portugal.
