Ethio NL Business Event

Project purpose

The aim of the event is to promote investment and trade opportunities in Ethiopia for the Dutch private sector and to create awareness among the potential investors. The opportunity can also be used to match Dutch private sector to Ethiopian companies seeking partners. This in return will strengthen the Ethio-Dutch relations in a strategic, durable and mutually beneficiary manner. This is a win-win approach for both sides.

Project results
The deliverable of the project is a two-day business event in the Netherlands, consisting of:

  • Preparation of the event, including official communication, venue, food&beverages, registration, etc;
  • Day 1: whole day business event, focussed on informing and attracting Dutch investors for Ethiopia in general, and with a focus on specific sectors. The substantive organization of the plenary session, the matchmaking and working dinner fall within the responsibilities of the consultant;
  • Day 2: company visits within the sectors oilseeds, vegetable seeds, dairy, poultry, spices, textiles and agro-logistics;
  • A report on the event, with specific attention for results in terms of business linkages and deals, based on an evaluation by all participants. This report will be presented to RVO in The Hague and to the EKN Addis Ababa;
  • Professional communication regarding the event, including a common design to be used for all communication (including the business opportunities reports), and the joint printing and publication of these business opportunities reports.

This project proposal refers to the overall organisation of the event. The sector specific issues will be the responsibility of third parties. This division of responsibilities is further explained under ‘activities’.
