Friday 31st of October 2008 - Erica Terpstra
On Friday the 31st of October there was one big event left for us. Erica Terpstra, former Dutch State Secretary in the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, headed a trade mission focussing on the opportunities surrounding and beyond the WC Soccer 2010 in South Africa. She and her party stopped for a lunch meeting sponsored by Imtech at the Holiday Inn in Soweto. Carlo presented the plans of World Mobile Plants and tried to seduce Erica Terpstra to promise that the Dutch soccer team would only be transported in buses fuelled by Miss Collect biodiesel. Although she could not make such a promise, she did express her enthusiasm for this project.
A good opportunity to have a final chat with the people we met the past week..
De Slager of Radio Holland Group and Erica Terpstra know how to shake hands South African style.
