Dutch Regional Visit to North Limburg
Today, Thursday May 27, Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima paid a regional visit to North Limburg.
The visit was focused on positive health and the influence of the coronavirus outbreak on the region.
The first stop was in the municipality of Venlo where the Royal Couple was welcomed by Johan Remkes, King’s Commissioner in Limburg since April. In Venlo the King and the Queen visited the Brightlands Campus Greenport, a campus where innovative entrepreneurs, researchers and students “work together on innovations in the fields of healthy and safe nutrition, future farming and biocircular economy”.
