Dutch minister for infra to open Geospatial World Forum 2012

Amsterdam, The Netherlands: Ms. Melanie Schultz van Haegen, Hon’ble Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment in the Netherlands, will open and deliver the opening address. Geospatial World Forum (GWF) 2012 on April 24, 2012, announced Geospatial Media and Communications Pvt. Ltd. The Forum will be held during April 23 – 27, 2012, at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam.
As the premium global geospatial industry event, Geospatial World Forum 2012 will bring all stakeholders – solution providers, policy makers as well as users, at a single platform, providing unparalleled opportunities for discussion, debate and interaction. The theme of the Forum 2012 is ‘Geospatial Industry & World Economy’. In tune with the theme, the conference will touch upon the dimensions and directions of geospatial industry and attempt to bring forward and project its utility, contribution and relevance to several important industries contributing to the economy of the world. 
The conference is being organised by Geospatial Media and Communications along with the Netherlands’ Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency (in short: Kadaster).
Ms. Schultz assumed office for Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment in October 2010. This is a newly formed ministry, which has evolved after merger of earlier Ministries of Transport, Public Works and Water Management and Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment.
Sanjay Kumar, Chief Executive Officer for Geospatial Media and Communications said, “It is indeed our proud privilege to welcome the Hon’ble Minister. The ministry, Ms Schultz heads, is one of the key beneficiaries of geospatial technologies. Her leading vision holds the key to the direction that the Netherlands will take in the coming years regarding projects with a geospatial core. We are confident that the delegates are eager to hear Ms Schultz. Her presence will add significant value to the forum.”
