Thursday, 8 February 2024, Magdeburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany: Pemier Dr. Reiner Haseloff received the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, HE Ronald van Roeden, for his inaugural visit to Magdeburg.

The 66-year-old ambassador joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands in 1985 after studying geography at the University of Utrecht. After various positions in the ministry itself and in his country’s missions abroad, he was most recently ambassador and deputy permanent representative to the EU in Brussels from 2017 to 2021. Previously, he was Deputy Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 2013 to 2017. He has been accredited as an ambassador in Germany since 1 September 2021. Van Roeden is married and has three children.

The Netherlands is one of Saxony-Anhalt’s most important trading partners. The close economic cooperation also includes, among other things, investments by Dutch companies in Saxony-Anhalt. For example, in July 2023, the Dutch high-tech company Sioux Technologies, which develops strategic solutions for international high-tech companies, announced its 20 million euro investment project in a research and development center in Barleben. The project is expected to create over 300 jobs.

There is also a close cultural connection between the Netherlands and Saxony-Anhalt. The Dutch ambassador had already visited Oranienbaum Palace last summer on the occasion of its 350th anniversary.
