International Scholars

After a happy ending to our travels to the Netherlands we arrived in the land of the Dyke, Windmill and farming below sea level. An experience in farming and culture that I am not familiar. Our first day was a power introduction of the 50 scholars from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Canada, U.S., NZ, Holland, France, India. They all know now that Longreach is the centre of the Universe !! The Dutch business culture is one of Colleague not of Competitor – this is why their co-operatives work and their knowledge transfer is rapid.
