Only a week after TTC Mobile’s co-founder Bas Hoefman attended lunch with the Dutch royals, our other co-founder Hajo van Beijma attended the annual Gala Dinner for the Diplomatic Corps at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam that is hosted by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima. This year’s dinner was dedicated to international business, and therefore representatives of international businesses were invited to join the prominent members of the Dutch royal family and ambassadors from all around the world.
About the Gala Dinner for the Diplomatic Corps
On Tuesday night King Willem Alexander and Queen Máxima of the Netherlands hosted the annual Gala Dinner for the Diplomatic Corps at the Royal Palace of Amsterdam in Dam Square. The Gala Dinner is held to maintain international relations and strengthen ties. The Netherlands maintains diplomatic relations with 181 states, 115 of which are represented in the Netherlands with an embassy or consulate. Because this year´s Gala Dinner was dedicated to international business, representatives from international business were invited as well. Co-founder and partnership director Hajo van Beijma had the honor to represent TTC Mobile.
Discussing projects with CEOs and ambassadors
Hajo used the opportunity to share ideas with ambassadors and CEOs of large and smaller companies that represent or are active in emerging markets. Amongst others, he shared details about our very recent project with Friesland Campina in Cape Verde and he discussed the health service that TTC Mobile has set up in Ethiopia for pregnant women and young mothers with the Ethiopian ambassador.
