Influentials Programme

Each year the Netherlands Enterprise Agency organises in collaboration with local embassies around 17 influentials programmes. The size of the delegations vary from 6 to 10 participants. The duration differs depending on the theme and goals of the visit, but usually lasts approximately 3 days. With influentials we mean for example politicians, scientists, civil servants, businesspeople, journalists or a mix.

In general, the programme serves to show what knowledge and expertise the Dutch have to offer in a specific sector or on a specific theme. It tries to give a realistic and detailed insight into our various policy fields. The aim is to promote a positive image of the Netherlands and, in the case of sensitive political issues, to provide insight into the Dutch standpoint and context.
