Trade mission Heemskerk & Koenders in 2009

In May 2009, the foundation was created for the further Port & Corridor developments when Ministers Koenders (Development Cooperaration) and Heemskerk (Forgein Trade) visited South Africa and Mozambique.

The Ministers said in 2009. “The economic mission focuses on two sectors in which the Netherlands excels and which link South Africa and Mozambique: corridor development in Southern Africa and the water sector. We are determined to use this visit to expand and intensify the extensive relations that we maintain through government, business community and knowledge institutions. It is our fervent hope that this mission will forge new cooperative links that will help shape our relations in the future.”

Their wish came true, with the establishment of the Port & Corridor Cooperation and the many business links that have been forged.
