Dutch Visitors Programme
In 2013 I was selected by the Dutch Embassy for the Dutch Visitors Programme, theme: creative industry.
The Dutch Visitors Programme (DVP) for high potentials is a programme by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and NL Agency. The programme is set up as a way of contributing to a better understanding of the Netherlands through the exchange of professional and personal experiences between participants and their Dutch colleagues. Moreover, the Dutch Visitors Programme should be used by the embassies as a tool for expanding and maintaining their network.
The Dutch Visitors Programme organises a ten day study visit to the Netherlands. The Dutch Visitors Programme is (for the time being) specially designed for young professionals from emerging countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Egypt, the Gulf States (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman), Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, South Korea and South Africa.
The programme was held December 1–12, 2013. I was one of the eight participants, representing Russian Federation.
