Considering a single Dutch Business Organization in Singapore.

In the past year, the DutchCham and the Association of the Dutch Business people (ADB) have been exploring the possibility of an intensified cooperation, including the option to combine our two organizations into a single Dutch Business Organization in Singapore.  

Whilst we continue to explore and possibly plan for such a combination, it is important to note that your DutchCham membership benefits, terms and membership fee for 2017 will remain the same as in previous years. Should there be any changes in 2017, it will be likely that more events, more opportunities and a broader network will become available to you.

The ambition of the boards of DutchCham and the Association of Dutch Businesspeople is to combine the two organizations into one Dutch business organization as a merger of equals. The combination is to create simplicity and a broader base thereby increasing the relevance, effectiveness and the efficiency for members.

Also important is the impact of the Dutch Business community through the new organization on “Singapore Inc” (public and private sector), as well as on Dutch professionals based in Singapore thereby creating further clarity about how “BV Nederland” is organized and represented in Singapore.

It is important to note that no decision on any of these plans has been taken on either DutchCham or ADB side. It will continue to be our priority to carefully evaluate against the objectives of DutchCham and the interests of our members. We will keep you informed and solicit your input and thoughts as appropriate. Obviously, any decision of this kind will be subject to a members’ vote during our regular AGM or an Extraordinary General Meeting convened especially for this purpose.

Meanwhile, the Chamber will continue to grow steadily in relevance and impact and we would like to take this occasion to thank you for your continued support and commitment throughout the past year.
