I am pleased to announce Mr Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Netherlands, will visit Australia from 9 to 11 October.

This will be the second time we welcome Prime Minister Rutte to our shores, and I look forward to discussing ways to strengthen our already close ties.

Our relationship with the Netherlands is founded on strong trade and investment ties, shared cultural values and people-to-people links.

Our discussions will focus on strengthening our two-way trade, international collaboration on finding justice for the families of MH17 victims and opportunities for broader cooperation.

During Prime Minister Rutte’s visit, he will meet members of the Dutch community, business people and a range of government officials including from the Victorian and New South Wales governments.
