Our history dates back to 2018 when a merger between the Association of Dutch Business people (founded in 1990) – which targeted individual professionals – and the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (founded in 2008) – which targeted companies – was finalized. We joined forces to offer an interesting range of activities for both professionals and companies ranging from formal corporate events to informal social gatherings. With this merger we aim to strengthen the links between those interested in Dutch business, to facilitate business links between Dutch and Singaporean companies, and to represent Dutch businesses in Singapore.
We believe together businesses can achieve greater success and we are committed to connecting businesses, sharing insights, sparking inspiration and creating new business opportunities.
