Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate Dubai


The past 10 years Dubai has invested heavily in transport and infrastructure improvements, which as a result is now ranked the third best in the world. Above these significant improvements Dubai’s location itself is ideal for being a global transport and logistic hub. The U.A.E. is strategically located at the centre of international trade as over one-third of the world’s population lives within a four-hour flight and two-thirds within an eight hours.We are pleased that, at this ‘Monthly Network Event’, we will share insights on the latest developments of the Transport and Logistic industry in the U.A.E. and how the Dutch (can) make a difference. We are delighted to welcome, Ms. Ryanne van der Eijk, Executive Vice President Customer Service Delivery at Dubai Airports, Mr. Albert Kraak, Senior Manager Logistics Services at DP World and Mr. Huub Hendrickx, managing director at Arriva,  to our event.
Prior to this event the Netherlands Business Council will hold the Annual General Assembly.
