After Hurricane Katrina, American newspapers wrote “Let’s bring in the Dutch”: a clear example of a unique Dutch export product, knowledge about maritime works. In addition to knowledge transfer, the Netherlands is also an exporter of drugs, natural gas, flower bulbs and so on. However, in these times of rapid developments and changes in the Dutch and global economy, the position of the Netherlands as an exporter is also changing. How did the Netherlands compete against major powers such as China and America, both in the past and now?
Having organized several very successful editions, Industria and Alumnia will organize TBKx once again this year. However, due to the measurements against the coronavirus, the evening will be different than used to be. On 14 september 2020, the first online edition on TBKx will take place. The formula stays the same, meaning that a number of speakers will talk about the overall theme: ‘Exporting the Netherlands’. Together with Sommedia, we provide you with a high quality livestream. Moreover, you will be able to ask questions during the participation round via this livestream. It promises to be a special evening!
* Master students who participate are automatically asked to become a free trial member of Alumnia – this allows you to participate in a selected number of Alumnia activities such as TBKx for free for the rest of your student time.

** Note that this evenement will be online. Therefore, every student is allowed to participate and will receive a link to the livestream upfront.
