In March 2019, over 70 representatives of 45 Netherlands related companies took part in the Agricultural Trade Mission to Uzbekistan organized by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture and Embassy and led by the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Mrs. Renée Jones-Bos. During a breakfast session, several International Financial Institutes shared their agricultural operations and projects in Uzbekistan.
The diverse program contained many interactive events, including a Breakfast Session with representatives of international financial institutions, a meeting with the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Uzbekistan, and an Uzbek–Dutch Agro Business Forum followed by individual B2B meetings.
