General information Holland

Last Year IPA Netherlands and the IPA Limburg-Noord branch were organizing the "IPA Netherlands Experience" week from the 18th of september 2017 untill the 23rd of september 2017.

The "IPA Netherlands Experience" gave information about our country. We think it is still useful for all our members, who will attend the World Congress 2018.
