The Head of mission

Ahlan! Welcome to the website of the Netherlands Representative Office in Ramallah. Since November 2014, I represent the Netherlands to the Palestinian Authority here.

Before this posting, I have worked as a diplomat for the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs in several countries. My postings included the United States, South Africa, Pakistan, the United Nations in New York, Indonesia and Afghanistan. In addition, I have served within the communication and media relations department at the Ministry.

I would like to invite you to take a look around our website. Here you can find the broad range of services that we offer and learn more about the political, cultural and economic life in The Netherlands and about Dutch-Palestinian relations. It is our intention to serve as information hub on The Netherlands for the Palestinian people and vice versa for the Dutch people, who are interested in bilateral relations with the Palestinian private sector or who wish to travel to the Palestinian Territories.

I would also like to highlight that, on this website, you can learn more about the activities of the Dutch government in the Palestinian Territory, including development cooperation (link) and humanitarian aid (link).

If you are interested in getting in touch with us or you have any suggestions on how we can improve our services, do not hesitate to contact the relevant department at the mission, which are outlined here (link).
