Toespraak van Koning Willem-Alexander tijdens de ontmoeting met de deelnemers van de economische missie, Jakarta
De toespraak is uitgesproken in het Engels.
Ladies and gentlemen,
My wife and I were delighted to join you today. This past hour, we have met many passionate entrepreneurs. They have told us that this day offers a fantastic opportunity to meet Indonesian counterparts and explore new connections.
We are proud that 110 Dutch companies – big and small – are taking part in the economic mission that is running alongside our state visit.
Many of you have been active in Indonesia for some time. Others are newcomers. But all of you are looking upon Indonesia as a resourceful and vibrant partner.
It gives me great joy that the Indonesian business community is so well represented here.
Our countries are facing the same challenges and are complementing each other extremely well. Not only in agriculture & food, but also in life sciences & health, water management and the circular economy.
I am confident that together we can find new, smart solutions for a sustainable future.
We have great admiration for what Indonesia has achieved. Our countries have the potential to make each other even stronger.
We are all very excited about the future prospects of our co-operation. Together we make a great team!
My wife and I would like to wish you every success in your endeavours. And of course we wish you a pleasant and productive trade dinner, later this evening.
Sampai djumpa lagi.
Hope to see you again soon!
