First DCC Business Club
From last year May DCC came with the idea of having a
Macedonian Dutch business event under the name of DCC business
club. We are very proud to say that we realized the first of
these events and that more dates are known. The main goal of
this event is to bring our members together and to discuss about
our common plans and activities for the future. It is our goal
to have these events ones in the month in different parts of
Macedonia with different themes highlighted.
Dutch Chamber of Commerce in Macedonia made a
successful organization of the first DCC Business Club in the
Restaurant Domini Youth Hostel on the 11th of
March 2008 from 20.30 oclock.
The main goal was to promote the Macedonian
and Dutch products and companies, as well to introduce the new
potential partners, cooperators and members. DCC plan to
organize every month a DCC Business Club in other region of the
country, in order to promote not only the chamber to the
potential partners but to represent and promote members of DCC
to interested firms,
institutions and organizations.
The first DCC Business club began with the opening word of the
president of DCC, Mr. Peter J. Bosse and the introduction of the
business club and event was a task of Mr. Ljupcho Todorovski,
the executive manager of DCC. Mr.
Mark Schneider from OLM Brewery made a short introduction about
himself, the brewery and OLM beer as well his business plans and

As told, the first DCC Business club was in a light of
a successful presentation of a new member and partner, Mr. Mark
Schneider owner and CEO of OLM Brewery from the
and introducing OLM beer on the Macedonian market. He brought
some marketing materials and 2 tags of OLM beer for the
presentation of the new Dutch product in
OLM showed great interest to build a brewery on Macedonian soil
so OLM can better serve not only Macedonian potential market but
also the surrounding five countries.
During his visit from 10-12 March we have visited other
breweries as well companies interested to co finance as
shareholders the Dutch brewery in
Macedonia. OLM beer is also
interested to take several Macedonian products such as wine for
the Dutch market.
From the Macedonian side- several
companies, members and potential members took a part in the
presentation of the Macedonian food and beverages sector with
their own products or products from the foreign or domestic
companies that they are representing. The products were exposed
on the same table for exhibition where the cocktail was, also
made from the same.
DCC is thankful for
the help and presentation of the following companies:
Ceko Fam Pehcevo

Ferijalen Dom Skopje
would like to express the gratitude to our new member, Mr.
Risteski Dragan-Pajton for the contribution of his restaurant
Domini for this first DCC Business Club.
On this event there were more then 80 people present, mostly
from the business society of
Macedonia, as well from the government
institutions and ministries, such as the Ministry for Economy of
and Agency for foreign investments.
In the special ambient the presentation and the cocktail

DCC, as well with a big orange umbrella from the OLM brewery.
Shortly spoken the DCC first business club has been a great
success and it has been a great opportunity to see so many

interest in The Netherlands. Also present was Mr. Sander Mulller
