On Monday, October 25 2021, we had the pleasure to welcome Fernando Antonio Grillo Rubiano, Ambassador of Colombia to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and Julian Camilo Silva Sánchez Counsellor for External Relations. The visit of the Ambassador to Bogotá allowed for a Meet and Greet event with a select group of Holland House Colombia members.
Through more than 25 short meetings, Fernando Grillo got the chance to exchange ideas with CEO´s of Dutch investors in Colombia and provide first-hand contacts to Colombian exporters of fruits, coffee and cosmetic products with interest in entering the European market.
At the end of the event, the Ambassador expressed to be pleasantly surprised by the continuing growth of trade and economic relations between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Colombia. Examples such as Montana Fruits , one of the first Colombian companies that has decided to invest in the Netherlands, and Sÿnc Global Technology B.V. a Dutch-Colombian start-up that aims to transform the security of international container transport, supported his optimism.
Ambassador Grillo has extensive knowledge of public administration through the roles he has held throughout his career, such as matters related to the strengthening and modernization of the Colombian State. Since his appointment in April 2021, he has proved to be an ambassador of the private sector, well aware of the importance of bilateral trade.
