Texas is ready for 2018
Greetings!

´╗┐The year 2017 was a very noteworthy year for Texas. With outstanding events like hosting Superbowl L1 in Houston, Hurricane Harvey and the Houston Astros winning the World series for the first time, Texas has been in the headlines multiple times.

In the last month of 2017 the NBSO has been working on a lot of things. We said goodbye to our two interns who did a marvelous job on writing to very interesting market reports. Colleagues from the Embassy in Washington visited Houston to discuss a further approach on water resilience. We are preparing the visit of a delegation of Dutch government officials, headed by the Director General of Rijkswaterstaat, to Houston on January 25-26. And we found an interesting Keynote speaker for our New Year's Reception.

Thank you for a wonderful 2017. Let's build on your success in 2018!
