This committee advises the board on communication towards the members and other organisations. Means of communication are evaluated and new means introduced. The committee discusses about the upcoming markets and areas where IRO can arrange a Holland Pavilion during exhibitions or trade missions to bring local operators in contact with IRO member companies.
Export is very important for IRO members: 70% of the € 10 billion turnover of the Dutch supply industry is export related. This is a good reason for IRO to support its members in international business and in that working closely together with 3rd party associations like NWEA, IADC, CEDA, NMT/NML and FME. IRO focuses on activities such as compiling market reports, seminars and trade missions, having Holland pavilions at exhibitions, etc.. The International relations & communications committee advises on IRO export activities.
