[2023-04-25] Meeting Before Departure

On Tuesday 25 April we kicked off our trip to Japan in May 2023 with the meeting before departure, together with members of our delegation, the Embassy of Japan, and the companies supporting the trip.

At this meeting which was hosted by Mr. Cees van der Helm (KPMG Meijburg) we were pleased to welcome Mr. Mitsuru Myochin, Minister of the Embassy of Japan, Mr. Tjapko Poppens, Mayor of Amstelveen, and Mr. Hiroyasu Matsubara, Managing Director of Yakult Europe and Board Member of Dujat, who each gave a short speech.

The contents of the Dujat Trip were explained in detail by Mrs. Christa de Kemp, Managing Director of Dujat, and various elements of the programme were highlighted by the organizing companies. For this we thank Mr. Rick Tervoort (Norinchukin Bank Europe), Mr. Jeroen van Mourik (Houthoff), Mr. Hideto Arai and Mr. Koji Noda (Daiwa House Europe) and Mr. Shuji Mori (Yokogawa Europe, Board Member of Dujat).
