SANEC and the Netherlands Embassy in South Africa's New Years Reception

Date: 05-02-2014

Location: Johannesburg / South Africa

It was a great pleasure to welcome the Mayor of Rotterdam, Mr. Ahmed Aboutaleb to our New Year’s reception which we organised in cooperation with the Netherlands Embassy in South Africa. Mr. Aboutaleb discussed the possibilities which “Crossing Borders” through ports has to offer both for the Netherlands and South Africa. Mr. Eric Apelgren was also present to offer a South African Perspective on crossing borders. Mr. Apelgren is the head of International and Governance Relations at the eThekweni Municiplaity. 
The night ended with a very ‘gezellig’ walking buffet and drinks. A lot of business cards were exchanged with members and other invited guests. It was a perfect start to 2014, and we aim to  continue the year in such high spirits.
