An agricultural trademission from Moldova visited in period of 13 until 17 October Belgium and The Netherlands. This roadshow was initiated by CCI (Moldavan chamber of commerce), as part of a project of East Invest which is managed by Eurochambres. CBI (department Dutch Ministry Foreign Affairs) requested HollandDoor to organize a tailormade and turnkey program for Wednesday 15 until Friday 17 October.
The mission participants were mainly board members of larger agro companies from Moldova, all active in production, processing and (export) sales of mainly fruits, juices, dried fruits and cereals.
Moldova recently signed an association and trade agreement with the EU. Moldovan companies currently define their strategies how agro import and export to EU can be improved. Since the Russian blockage of EU agro exports, also Moldova lost an important export destination.
Objective of the trademission was to increase awareness and inderstanding of the knowledge level and technical and economical infrastructure of Belgium and Dutch companies. Also more information about EU retail market conditions was requested. Of course, the delegation was looking also for new contact networks to discuss further trade possibilities and cooperation to enforce Moldovan production and sales configuration.
During the stay in the Netherlands, the delegation visited Prominent telersvereniging, FloraHolland, GreenQ, RVJ Eurasia Services, Roveg Fruit Trading, Groen Agro Control and Aweta. Besides the visits, also some presentations were shown and many business matchmaking activities took place which resulted in new contacts which should further be explored.
The delegation was very pleased with the program in The Netherlands as organized by CBI and HollandDoor. A letter of gratitude was received, see here.
