Mr. B.E.M. Wientjes – Chairman of the Confederation of Dutch Industries and Employers (VNO-NCW)
He supported, developed and realized the idea of the meetings between the ‘captains’ of Dutch business and the President of the Russian Federation. Mr. Wientjes appeared as moderator from the Dutch side in those meetings during the visits of the leaders of our countries.
