Keynote speeches

The Polish-Dutch Business Forum in the Netherlands brings together more than 200 Dutch and Polish top level executives. The Forum offers a pre-eminent platform for influencing and networking with leaders in business and politics. The speakers include Mrs. Jadwiga Emilewicz, Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology of the Republic of Poland, and Mrs. Sigrid Kaag, Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation of the Netherlands, who will present keynote speeches.

Green theme

Organised under the overall theme ‘Greening the growth through innovation’, the Forum will address challenges faced by both Polish and Dutch entrepreneurs in this field. Stakeholders will gather to brainstorm on topics such as e-mobility, smart solutions in the life science sector, start-up hubs and innovation alliances. In addition to the keynote speeches by ministers from both countries, the 2019 Forum will consist of over 10 events: including a high-profile stakeholder roundtable, private sector-led sessions, networking events and the award ceremony for the Dutch-Polish Business Award.
