You are invited to join the Study Tour on Protected Horticulture and Cold Chain Supply in Egypt, taking place from 11-15 February 2024.
A collaborative consortium comprising of Dutch Greenhouse Delta (DGD), Delphy, and the Netherlands-African Business Council (NABC) has been awarded the RVO tender “Road toward a Consortium on Climate and Water Smart Protected Cultivation in Egypt”. The consortium of partners will organise all activities during the study visit, and advise companies in their hotel booking. All activities will be further coordinated with the Netherlands Embassy in Cairo.
The core programme consists of 3 days (February 12-14), with 2 additional days allocated for travel (February 11 and 15). It includes two days of field visits to relevant Egyptian/Dutch subsidiary greenhouses/farms, a networking reception, and one Demo Day which includes a seminar, showcasing Dutch expertise in protected horticulture and cold chain, and a matchmaking event.
The aim of the visit will be to bolster knowledge exchange and strengthen the bilateral cooperation between the Netherlands and Egypt on climate and water-smart agriculture. Such cooperation encompasses an intention for long-term collaboration such as a PIB formulation or other long-term programs.
