direction” - John F. Kennedy
2017 marks 70 years of diplomatic relationship between India and The Netherlands. June 2017 has been
the most eventful and powerful month witnessed in the history of India and Netherlands bilateral ties. I
am very pleased to announce the opening of ICAI Chapter in Amsterdam, the first in European Union.
The ICAI Chapter would not just be confined to the accounting profession, I see a very large canvass of
business opportunities that will galvanize from this foundation that we have set up here. Chartered
Accountants play a very important role in accounting and finances of companies and they could do a lot
more towards being an enabler in the eco-system of growth between India and the Netherlands.
ICAI Chapter in the Netherlands will create a platform that will foster tremendous opportunities for
Chartered Accountants in European Union.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi “The future depends on what we do in the present.” Let’s join hands
to be a part of the journey where India-Netherlands relationship reaches to a next level.
