Inpa Parket bv has been awarded first price of The Latin American Trade Award 2007. This award is an initiative of the Dutch Department of Economical Affairs, ABN-Amro, The Netherlands-Latin America Business Council (NLABC) and KPMG.
A pre-selection placed four Dutch companies together in the race for this award and on Thursday 15 November Inpa was announced the winner. During the award ceremony - at the Head-Office of ABN-Amro - the award was handed over by Drs Chris Buijink, secretary-general of the Dutch Department of Economical Affairs, to Arthur Hoetelmans of Inpa Parket.
The ceremony followed after various presentations and talks on "changes and opportunities in trading with/in Latin America."
"Our ongoing involvement, in a sustainable and responsible way, in South America's forestry combined with assisting the local community with development and employment has contributed greatly to us winning the award."
