Joint Conference - Trilateral Strategy for the Chemical Industry - Cross-border Cooperation of the Netherlands, Flanders, and North-Rhine Westphalia

Industry, Enterprise and Innovation
Date: Thursday, 28 September 2017 18:00 - 20:30

Venue: Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the European Union  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The Netherlands, the Flemish region, and the German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia are forming the heartland of Europe´s chemical sector. Combined, they account for one in two euros in terms of chemical industry turnover in Europe.

To bundle the different approaches and efforts to strengthen the chemical industry and to improve the cross-border frame conditions, the named three partners decided to have a closer look at their strengths, weaknesses and potentials. As a result a joint strategy has been developed, which we will present jointly.
