NEWS FROM THE NCCC
Meet the 'Traders by Nature'

During summer 2019, we worked hard to develop and promote our new proposition, “Traders by Nature”.

The Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce aims to create a sustainable positive impact on prosperity and well-being by applying Dutch creativity (Dutch Design is famous worldwide), innovation strength (the Netherlands rank fourth on the Global Innovation Index 2019) and leadership in the circular economy concept.

We connect to create impact: we connect businesses to experience, to knowledge and to influence, including government.

In the coming months you will see the Traders by Nature proposition take further shape in the way we present ourselves and the events we organise, for, and with you. 

Alone you might go fast, but together we will go far.

See how in this short video NCCC: Traders by Nature
