Texas is developing and so are the economic ties between the Netherlands and Texas. The Dutch presence in Texas is remarkable and is visible in business, but also in governmental and educational institutions and partnerships. In this newsletter we highlight one of our colleagues from the Dutch Embassy and Dutch company Scandia Gear. We welcomed the solar team van Eindhoven with Stella Lux in Austin, and we want to introduce you to a new item: our Trading Post. Last but not least we have a very interesting press release regarding SWSX in Austin. Yet another interesting newsletter ahead.
