Successful Taiwan Family Day event hosted in Porceleyne Fles

The second Taiwan Family Day event was organized by TBA, IQ and WFIA in The Porceleyne Fles in Delft. This event was mainly to strengthen the ties with the Taiwanese business community in the Netherlands. In total there were more than 100 participants attending this event.

The day was kicked off with a very special performance by an aboriginal music group from Taidong, followed by speeches from the Mayor of Delft Marja Bijsterveldt, Ambassador of Taiwan Representative Office Tom Chou, a short interview between WFIA’s Executive Director Ilja van Haaren (also former CEO of Porceleyne Fles), IQ Director of Foreign Investment team Chris van Voorden and the CEO of Porceleyne Delft Henk Schouten. The Mayor of Delft gave a short introduction of the history of Delft and its famous Delft Blue pottery. She also warmly invited the Taiwanese families to revisit the city in the future. Ambassador of Taipei Representative Office Tom Chou applauded the growing bilateral tourism, trade and investments between Netherland and Taiwan. He also mentioned the added value of reaching out to our investment agencies for advice and assistance when coming to the Netherlands to expand business. After the speeches a typical Dutch lunch was served with ‘kroketten’, quiches and sandwiches, followed by a guided tour through the museum and the factory.

TBD 2017

This day was a great introduction of Delft and its typical Dutch cultural heritage with its original roots from China. Both parents and children learned more about the history, design and techniques of Porcelain. The highlight of the day was the workshop for the children where they could paint their own Delfts Blue tile in a workshop.
