Expectations were shared, the program for the week discussed, the stakeholders to visit and where the Netherlands can add most value.

More specific the flood issues around Obrenovac and the nearby coal mines and energy plant Nikola Tesla, all in the Kolubara river basin, were discussed. This area has been affected severely during the flood in 2014.
