The Volvo Ocean Race is currently having a stopover in Cape Town at the V&A Waterfront.
Representatives from Holland have arrived in South Africa to make use of the event to hold an economic trade mission.
Many of the delegates are from the Hague, another Volvo stopover point, and the aim is to learn from one another.
CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies spoke to Dutch Consul General Bonnie Horbacj, and Karsten Klein, deputy mayor for the City of the Hague.
We use this as a platform to bring a very serious message to the world which fits very well with our international City of the Hague.— Karsten Klein, City of the Hague deputy mayor
We saw that the Volvo Ocean race was focusing on sustainability and we invited about 30 Dutch companies that focus on water to come here but not to focus on the drought but on the longer term relations.— General Bonnie Horbacj, Dutch Consul
