Given their strategic contributions and leadership on sustainable development, the Netherlands will help strengthen the P4G network. The Netherlands engagement in P4G seeks to support innovative partnerships that achieve sustainable and inclusive growth in developing countries The Netherlands will facilitate knowledge-sharing through Dutch private and public sector expertise in areas such as circular economy, digitalization, entrepreneurship and making global value chains sustainable.
“For the Netherlands, the P4G initiative isn’t only a deeply felt international responsibility, it’s also a matter of enlightened self-interest. P4G means that we must act at the national level and that we must act together. We must act in concert with other nations because no country and no government can fight climate change alone.”
