2nd Open Russia Greenhouse Debate at the Amstel Boathouse, Holland

by | Jun 18, 2018 | Expos |


Hot on the heels of the successful “Orchards of Russia” event in Moscow at the start of the month, Aqua-4D was pleased to be invited to participate in the 2nd Open Russia Greenhouse Debate. Held in the magnificent surroundings of the Amstel Boathouse on the outskirts of Amsterdam, this was an occasion bringing together various stakeholders for an open and frank ideas-sharing session, and a presentation regarding important trends to look out from now through 2020.

Aqua-4D’s Javier Meyer, having recently himself returned from Moscow, was on hand to give his first-hand opinions, and held centre-stage during the Q&A session with a pertinent question regarding import tariffs on goods from the EEA and the potential effects of this on European companies seeking to enter the Russian market. It was also a good chance to catch up with our colleagues at the Agro Innovation magazine, whose latest print edition chose Aqua-4D Water Solutions for an in-depth profile.
