Review: Incoming Trade Mission Sri Lanka Poultry sector June 2018

Commissioned by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), the Netherlands Export Combination (NEC) organised, in cooperation with the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Colombo, Sri Lanka, from 17th-24th June an incoming trade mission from Sri Lanka. Thirteen veterinarians, five representatives from layer farmers and five representatives from broiler farmers visited the Netherlands. The mission was meant to let the Sri Lankan delegation get to know more about the Dutch technologies available and used here as well as getting in contact with major Dutch companies within the poultry sector. Several company visits, a business to business matchmaking event and a visit to the VIV Europe fair made this possible.


Seminar & Business Matchmaking
During a specially organised seminar (which also included a business to business matchmaking) at the Poultry museum in Barneveld, the Netherlands, Dutch companies got informed on the current situation and the development of the Sri Lankan poultry sector. After the seminar there was the possibility to meet the Sri Lankan delegation one-on-one. The delegation received an informative tour through the poultry museum. This day turned out to be very successful for all parties involved!



VIV Europe fair
Both the company as the veterinarian delegation visited, after having done several company visits and training sessions, the VIV Europe 2018 fair in Utrecht. The delegation visited the fair multiple days. On Friday only five members of the company delegation went to the VIV Europe fair, where they were interviewed by VIV Worldwide journalist Peter Best, which resulted in very interesting conversations. This interview can be reviewed on the VIV Worldwide website. Both the organised program as well as the VIV Europe visit were very well received by the entire delegation, where they got to meet and get in contact with many interesting company representatives.
