Diplomatic Hour: In Conversation with the Ambassador of the Netherlands

On the 15th February 2024, BFPG was delighted to be joined by His Excellency Karel van Oosterom, Ambassador of the Netherlands for a wide-ranging conversation on UK-Dutch relations. As North Sea neighbours, the UK and the Netherlands share historic ties of friendship, based on shared values and strong cooperation. The conversation touched on a variety of themes including the opportunities for UK-Dutch engagement, the importance of collaboration in addressing major global challenges including the war in Ukraine and supporting NATO, how best to approach China, economic interdependence and the UN Security Council.

We are very grateful for the Ambassador’s time and for the engagement of the Dutch embassy in our Diplomatic Hour series. The next event in our series will be a public event with the Ambassador of Austria on the 22nd February, for which there are a very limited number of spaces still available.
