**************** Non-commercial announcement ****************

Aussies and Kiwis sampling Dutch broadband
From 11 to 14 March an Australian New Zealand Broadband Trade and Study Mission will visit the Netherlands. Projects such as CityNet, AMS-IX and the Almere Grid are high on the agenda. The visit is a sequel to the successful Netherlands Trade Mission to Australia, which took place in April 2006. Both events occur within the context of the celebrations of the first European landing on Australian shores, by the vessel Duyfken, in 1606.

An Australia-New Zealand-Netherlands Roundtable will take place in Amsterdam on 13 March, at which an address will be delivered by the Australian Minister for Communications and the Deputy Director General Telecom and Energy of the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs. This full-day event will feature prominent speakers from the three countries and will strengthen the ties between them.

Besides representatives of Australian Internet and telecommunications industries, representatives will be present of the e-healthcare sector, particularly in relation to patient monitoring via broadband systems. Several healthcare providers are participating in the Mission, and they also are interested in Dutch expertise.
