January 11, 2017 In December 2016 the Embassy of the Netherlands continued its successful conference series on circular economy. During the second event the main subject was sustainable agriculture. In his openings speech, Ambassador Gajus Scheltema stressed that the transition from a linear to a circular economy will be one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. He added that this can only be accomplished with joined forces, because of the complex effect on ecosystems and macro-economic considerations. Even though the Netherlands may be considered a pioneer in introducing the mindset and innovative applications of a circular economy, a real breakthrough will only be achieved with the help of EU partners, both on a governmental and corporate level. Ambassador Scheltema concluded his speech hoping that “this will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship”, quoting the famous words of Casablanca movie.
