It was a big pleasure for us to be able to meet our members and friends of the NCCC Traders by Nature again. This year's Prinsjesdag proved to be an event where you can get inspired by personal stories and establish meaningful connections.

The mission of the NCCC Traders by Nature is to create sustainable positive impact on well-being and prosperity. Therefore, we were pleased and honoured to have Soňa Klepek Jonášová, Founder of INCIEN, Institute for Circular Economy in the Czech Republic, and Petr Vítek, Co-founder of Impact Hub Czech Republic and Tilia Impact Ventures as the keynote speakers at this year's Prinsjesdag. They shared their views and ideas during their speech 'Fit for 55: What could be its dynamics in the Czech Republic?'.

Moreover, guests of the Prinsjesdag had an opportunity to meet the new Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Prague, H.E. Mr. Daan Huisinga. Last but not least, Lt. Col. Frank Gjeruldsen, representing The Salvation Army, charity partner of our Prinjesdag event, encouraged everyone to support the most vulnerable homeless people via their Harbour Homes project. After the programme, guests enjoyed the tasty Indonesian rijsttafel which is an essential part of this event by the NCCC Traders by Nature.
