Cabinet in talks with business sector

28 August 2007

THE HAGUE – The cabinet will meet informally with a number of Dutch business leaders at the prime minister's residence the Catshuis on Tuesday evening. The most important topic of conversation will be the business climate.

Globalisation and the recent wave of takeovers will also be discussed. It will be a relaxed meeting, not expected to lead to any formal conclusions.

Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, Finance Minister Wouter Bos and Economic Affairs Minister Maria van der Hoeven will attend the talks on behalf of the government.

The participants from the business sector have not been officially announced, but insiders say that Hans Wijers of Akzo and directors from Shell, Unilever and Philips are expected.

In addition to the directors from ten large companies, representatives from two quickly growing businesses have also been invited, one of whom is TomTom CEO Harold Goddijn.
