With a fresh government in place in the Netherlands, the new minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Sigrid Kaag, called on the public for input into her new policy through an online consultation. As an active contributor to the current knowledge agenda of Dutch development policy, we took up the opportunity to share our vision for the Dutch Foreign Trade and Development agenda. The Broker’s main message is that the Netherlands should continue valuing knowledge for development, while keeping the focus on subjects that the Netherlands is particularly knowledgeable on.
