Ilse Zaal is Deputy for the province of Noord-Holland. The Amsterdam Economic Board has an important role in the regional investment agenda. What will we focus on as a region and what are the economic opportunities? Hydrogen, the circular economy, food and green recovery topics are important, according to Ilse, and should be higher on the agenda. Ilse also sees huge opportunities in data centers, the labour market and education. She can use her network to bring new players into the market.
“The network organisation is the Amsterdam Economic Board’s strongest side. In the Board there are a lot of people with knowledge as well as decision-making capacity. That is an enormous added value.”
Ilse Zaal is affiliated with the AMdEX and Textile Loops initiatives and the House of Skills and Amsterdam Smart City programmes.
