How are trade and logistics interests more reflected in the new BBB program? We see that the BBB has adopted many of the points from our 10-point program into its program. This is good news for trade and logistics. The three most striking points: Improving cooperation between SMEs and universities in the field of digitalization and sustainability, BBB wants to invest heavily in infrastructure and endorses the importance of air freight. We will discuss this in more detail below.
The BBB pays a lot of attention in its program to digitalization among small and medium-sized businesses. There will be an accessible scheme especially for innovation among small entrepreneurs and the opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of their innovations through “pilot projects” (testing grounds). It also encourages improved links between universities of applied sciences and Dutch companies in the field of digitalization and sustainability. The BBB also calls for the appointment of a Minister for Digitalisation.
Good infrastructure is crucial for the effective and efficient use of mobility and transport. The BBB takes into account good physical infrastructure such as: waterways, airways, railways, highways, pedestrian and bicycle paths. The party considers additional investments in bicycles, railways, highways and waterways to be important: the infrastructure budget will be increased structurally.
- Innovation in the aviation sector
The BBB wants to give the aviation sector the opportunity to innovate bigger, faster and work toward a clean future. BBB wants good, accessible air freight and a good network of international connections: this remains important to our business community and business climate.
