Netherlands team meets George

A five-member delegation from Netherlands on Wednesday called on Bengaluru Development Minister K J George to explore possibilities of having knowledge partnerships related to municipal water supply and other areas. 

The main objective of the meeting, which lasted for nearly 30 minutes, was to discuss the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Karnataka and the City of the Hague on issues such as elderly care, start-ups, cyber security and urban cycle planning, besides municipal water supply.

A spokesman for the delegation said they felt that the challenges of the state and the City of the Hague were similar in nature and it provided a solid base for a peer and knowledge partnership related to municipal water supply. 

An MoU will be prepared on topics which were discussed in the meeting and it is likely to be formally signed during the visit of Vice Mayor of the City of The Hague, Karsten Klein, and the CEO of Dutch water organisation Dunea, WimDrossaert, in November this year.
