They dined with the Wageningen Ambassadors and the executive board. The visit formed part of a 3-day tour of the Netherlands. ‘Our country is a frontrunner in the EU,’ says co-organizer and MEP Jan Huitema (VVD). ‘We are showing our innovative companies and talking about the latest developments in the fields of agriculture, environment and nutrition, so as to see whether European legislation is still up to date.’
