Prinsjesdag 2016

17.30 - 21.30

Velkopřevorský Palace, a seat of the Order of Malta – Grand Priory of Bohemia (Suverénní řád Maltézských rytířů – České Velkopřevorství), had been unknown to most of the participants to our Prinsjesdag and we were happy to provide the opportunity for them to discover this beautiful place located close to the Charles Bridge. The keynote speakers on the topic of ‘innovation’ – Ad van Dongen (ING Bank, Amsterdam) and Radek Špicar (Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic) also proved to be very good, thus making this event one of the highlights of this year's activities of the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce.

Pavel Šenych, Vice-Chairman of the NCCC Board of Directors, welcomed the audience and passed his word to H.E. Ed Hoeks, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Ambassador Hoeks summarized the main ideas of the Throne Speech that King Willem-Alexander gave in the Ridderzaal earlier that day, mentioning the impact of Brexit on the Netherlands, state of unemployment in the Netherlands and the terrorism threat in Europe.

Ad van Dongen, Innovation Driver Wholesale Banking at ING Bank (Amsterdam) came from the Netherlands to share his view of innovations at the banking industry. He talked about the growing importance of financial technologies and the cooperation between startups and traditional banks, such as ING. His speech raised a lot of interest among the Prinsjesdag guests.

During the impressive speech of Radek Špicar, Vice-President of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic, with his practical example of creative approach to innovations he gave from the time he spent in Škoda Auto, the audience could not help but listen carefully to every word that Radek Špicar had to say.

Having thanked all speakers and sponsors of the event, Pavel Šenych then invited participants to enjoy the Indonesian set of dishes “rijsttafel” (prepared by Zátiší Catering) that have become an inherent part of our Prinsjesdag event.

Many thanks once again to all of you who spent this wonderful evening with us, as well as to our sponsors and partners who helped us to make it happen:
