During the forum, Dutch ambassador Dr Bahia Tahzib-Lie and and DBCQ
chairman Robert Willem Cats underlined the importance of service as an enabler to advance business opportunities and strengthen relationships, and the contribution of Dutch companies in Qatar in this area.
Talking to Qatar Tribune, Allard Bijlstra, a member of the organising committee, said: "The idea of a golf tournament was initiated by DBCQ
so that members of the European business community in Qatar can network and explore investment and sales opportunities in the region." "As organisers, we are delighted with the response and success of the event.
The Annual General Members' Assembly of the Dutch Business Council Qatar (DBCQ) took place recently in Doha at the residence of The Netherlands ambassador Yvette Burghgraef-van Eechoud.
The "strong collaboration" between the DBCQ and the embassy was highlighted during the meeting, with a series of "successful visits and presentations" organised last year.
Another major achievement of last year was the official registration of the DBCQ under the Qatar Financial Centre regulation, as a limited liability company with guarantee - DBCQ LLC (G).
"Experiencing an increase in diversity of Dutch companies and affiliates operating in Qatar, the Dutch Business Council Qatar can add value as a platform to their activities by supporting new arrivals, networking through its members and sharing information," the DBCQ said.
The DBCQ facilitates and promotes the interests of its member stakeholders, such as Dutch professionals in Qatar (resident and non-resident), Qatari nationals with general or business interests in The Netherlands, Dutch companies in Qatar and new Dutch entrepreneurs in Qatar.
