At the start of the week, the minister of Agriculture Carola Schouten and her American colleague Sonny Perdue ceremonially cut the ribbon to officially open demonstration greenhouse KAS2030 in Bleiswijk while Executive Board President Louise Fresco looked on. Reactions on intranet learn that not everyone was pleased with the security measures: ‘Disproportionate and paranoid. I don’t think WUR should consent to all this — don’t invite the American minister if that is what it takes... Anyway, opening a new complex is something you should do with your own staff.’
