Welcome to the economic mission to North Rhine-Westphalia, where the focus is on the vital role of green hydrogen in the energy transition. 

Running in conjunction with the visit of His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, this mission seeks to fortify cross-border collaboration with Germany, particularly in North Rhine-Westphalia, a key industrial hub in the Ruhr Region. The region's energy-intensive industries, spanning steel, chemicals, plastics, cement, and more, are poised to become major consumers of green hydrogen as part of the state government's vision to create a climate-neutral industrial center. 

With the Netherlands aspiring to be a key player in importing, producing, and exporting hydrogen, this mission offers Dutch companies and knowledge institutions promising opportunities. The pursuit of new knowledge, insights, connections, and trade prospects underscores our commitment to a successful and inspiring mission.
