Thank you for joining us for the New Year’s Reception that was hosted by the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in his residence. As usual, it was a very pleasant evening in the company of NCCC members and partners of the Embassy of the Netherlands.
The joint event of the NCCC and the Embassy was opened by the Ambassador Ed Hoeks who reminded us that the Netherlands is holding the EU presidency in the first half of 2016. On this occasion, the Embassy of the Netherlands will organize a number of cultural and economic events in Prague, while some of them will be co-organized with the NCCC.
The Chairman of the NCCC Board of Directors, Elias Drakopoulos, also welcomed the guests of the New Year's Reception and thanked the Ambassador for opening the doors of his residence to us, as well as of the Embassy offices, as the Chamber is going to be relocated there in the coming months.
The guests then toasted to a happy and prosperous year 2016 and enjoyed the rest of the evening with their friends and business partners from the NCCC and broader Dutch business community.
