This digital edition of the Cooperative Day also needs a chairman. This year Fien Vermeulen has been chosen. From a studio in The Hague, she guides you through the programme, announces guests and provides a summary of the session in conversation with the management.
At the table discussion Volop kansen tot bloei (Plenty of opportunities to flourish), Fien is the discussion leader and talks to Guido Landheer, director of European, International and Agro-economic Policy at the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, and Steven van Schilfgaarde, CEO Royal Flora Holland, about what the Dutch floriculture sector will look like in 2027. In this table discussion we look back briefly on the recent period of the emergency fund for floriculture. We also look ahead to the upcoming policy in 2021. What changes in the world market and developments in the chain are we seeing? This is how you recognise opportunities for a flourishing future for your company.
