Episode 42: Evert-Jan SchouwstraFirst aired: Tuesday, 12 April 2016 at 18.24 hours
WTC North Netherlands Director Evert-Jan Schouwstra is busy with the pitch premier annual event in the global World Trade Organization, the General Assembly. A big event plus conference where members from around the world come together.
And how nice it would be that in the year Leeuwarden is the European Capital of Culture, 2018, this event takes place in Leeuwarden.
An event like this could give a great boost to the business in North Netherlands. And that's where Schouwstra has invested in the pitch. According contacts of the international organization in New York is a very strong application. Exciting.
Further Schouwstra goes into this conversation with our presenter Marijke Roskam in the role WTC Leeuwarden wants to play for the entrepreneurs operating in North Netherlands and who wish to undertake internationally, such as Iran at the moment.
