NEW YORK: Malaysia wants to tap into the Netherlands‘ experience in flood management to see if it can be applied to flood mitigation in Malaysia, the prime minister has said.

Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the Dutch have long been considered experts in this field and Malaysia could learn from the experience of the former.

He said it was among the issues he discussed with his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte when they met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

“We hope to get advice from them to minimize the effects of the floods,” he told Malaysian media.

Due to its low altitude – about two-thirds of its area is vulnerable to flooding – flood control is therefore crucial in the Netherlands.

Ismail Sabri said that Malaysia and the Netherlands had agreed to strengthen trade relations between the two countries, pointing out that the latter was the biggest importer of palm oil in Europe.

On the MH17 issue, the Prime Minister had informed Rutte that Malaysia’s next decision would be known after the trial in a Dutch court delivered its verdict in November.

He said Malaysia did not want to “take the leap” and publicize their next course ahead of the verdict.

“There have been attempts by some countries, including the Netherlands and Australia, to call on Malaysia to accuse Russia of its involvement in the case,” he said.

Verdicts in the Dutch trial in absentia of three Russians and a Ukrainian accused of involvement in the downing of MH17 are due on November 17, according to reports.

The trial began on March 9, 2020 and an international team of investigators and prosecutors named four suspects – Russians Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinskiy and Oleg Pulatov as well as Ukrainian Leonid Kharchenko.

They are accused of murdering all those who died in the tragedy.

The MH17 was flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down by a missile fired from territory held by pro-Russian rebels during fighting with Ukrainian government troops, international investigators have said.

All 298 people on board were killed in the July 17, 2014 incident, two-thirds of whom were Dutch nationals.

The Netherlands has failed to master EU legislation banning single-use forms of plastic, according to a report by environmental activists.

Three organisations, Seas at Risk, Surfrider Europe and Zero Waste Europe, have released a report summarizing the progress made in the EU to implement the Single Use Plastics Directive.

The directive prohibits certain plastic items that are used and thrown away, and which have alternatives that are readily available and less damaging to the environment. It includes straws, cotton swabs, wet wipes and food containers, and aims to reduce pollution on European beaches and waters.

Although the decision came into force on January 1, 2022, the report says some countries are “laggards” in introducing local legislation, others are “unambitious” and some have “adopted measures or exemptions damaging”.

red mark

The report praises the approach of countries such as France, Luxembourg, Sweden and Ireland. Although the Netherlands scores well on bans, product marking and separate collection points, it gets a red mark for not reducing the consumption of single-use plastics.

Overall, the country’s adoption of the measures is “in progress or incomplete”, according to the report – well behind neighboring France.

“Countries like the Netherlands tend to focus their awareness efforts on influencing consumer behavior towards less waste, which is a fairly conservative approach to SUP awareness. [single use plastics]given that users at large should be targeted, including public administrations and small and large businesses,” the report notes.

Cigarettes

Although he calls the country a “laggard” when it comes to overall awareness, he praises campaigns such as the annual cigarette butt collection. Cigarette butts also contain plastic, and some MPs and environmental activists in the Netherlands have advocated a ban.

Meanwhile, a deposit system for small plastic bottles, introduced this year, is said to have increased recycling by around 80%.

Larissa Copello, campaigner for Zero Waste Europe, said in a press release that more can be done in the EU to ensure polluters pay: “The requirement for producers to cover certain costs for a range of plastics for has been a big step forward. However, it seems to be the most troublesome measure, with many countries lagging behind. Correct implementation is crucial to achieving the ‘polluter pays’ principle, ensuring that producers bear 100% of the cost of cleaning up discarded single-use plastic items.”

Lightning may never strike the same spot twice, but when it comes to attacking UCI Road World Championship cyclists, the Australian birds seem to have their favourites, as Dutchman Bauke Mollema found at his expense on Wednesday.

The current Dutch national time trial champion and multiple Tour de France stage winner had already been stung while training on Tuesday by a territorially minded magpie as the bird snapped at the back of his helmet.

The third edition of the UEFA Nations League is well under way, with four matchdays played and two more before the final in June 2023.

UEFA.com assess the layout of the pitch ahead of Thursday’s matchday five fixtures.

All Nations League matches


Thursday September 22

Group A1 France – Austria
Group A1 Croatia – Denmark
Group A4 Belgium – Wales
Group A4 Poland – Netherlands
Group C1 Turkey vs Luxembourg
Group C1 Lithuania – Faroe Islands
Group C3 Kazakhstan – Belarus (4:00 p.m.)
Group C3 Slovakia – Azerbaijan
Group D1 Latvia – Moldova (6:00 p.m.)
Group D1 Liechtenstein – Andorra

All kick-off times 8:45 p.m. CET, unless otherwise stated

Croatia wants to rebuild Denmark

Highlights: Denmark 0-1 Croatia

After opening their campaign with a 3-0 home loss to Austria, Croatia held off world champions France to a 1-1 draw before posting back-to-back wins over Denmark and Les Bleus . Thursday’s victory would see the Vatreni edge ahead of Kasper Hjulmand’s side at the top of the group.

The UEFA EURO 2020 semi-finalists’ home loss to Croatia in June was their only defeat in the group stage so far and followed eye-catching triumphs in Vienna and Paris respectively. After finding their way back to winning ways at home against Austria last time out, another victory here would secure them a place in the final.

Key stat: Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has recorded more ball recoveries (35) than any other player in the competition so far.

France fights for its survival against Austria

Highlights: Austria 1-1 France

Holders France can no longer reach the final after picking up just two points from their four group matches in June. Didier Deschamps’ side, yet to win at home after losing to Denmark and Croatia in Paris, recovered from a 1-1 draw in Vienna in the previous encounter thanks to a late Kylian effort Mbappe.

Austria must win at the Stade de France and hope that further results will allow them to maintain their slim hopes at the top of the group. A 3-0 win at Osijek on Matchday 1 proved a false dawn for Ralf Rangnick’s side, who went on to lose home and away to Denmark and draw with France in the Ernst-Happel-Stadion.

Key stat: France had lost only one game in their history in the League of Nations before this campaign.

Belgium fights to stay in contention

Highlights: Wales 1-1 Belgium

Belgium bounced back from a heavy opening day loss to the Netherlands with a resounding 6-1 triumph at home to Poland. However, Brennan Johnson’s late equalizer at Cardiff in June left Roberto Martínez’s side in an uphill battle to reach a second consecutive Nations League final – they are three points behind a Dutch side they faced in their last game.

That 1-1 draw remains the Dragons’ only point so far, but Robert Page’s side have performed well in tight defeats to Poland and the Oranje (home and away). Page expects a similar grainy display in Brussels.

Key stat: Leandro Trossard and Michy Batshuayi are the only players to score twice for the Red Devils in Group A4.

The Dutch on the verge of the second final

Highlights: Netherlands 2-2 Poland

Louis van Gaal’s side will advance to the final if they win in Warsaw and Belgium fail to beat Wales. Only two teams – Turkey and Georgia – have found the net more often than the Netherlands in this season’s competition and they will be confident of continuing their rich vein of form in front of goal against a slippery Polish defence.

Czesław Michniewicz’s Poland will be relishing their 2-2 draw in Rotterdam earlier in the competition – a game in which they were leading 2-0 early in the second half. And with Robert Lewandowski in impressive form at club level, the hosts will relish their chances of claiming another positive result.

Key stat: Memphis Depay scored three goals in as many Nations League appearances in 2022 but missed a last-minute penalty in the 2-2 draw with Poland.

Elsewhere Thursday

Highlights: Luxembourg 0-2 Turkey

• In Group C1, Turkey will be promoted to League B if they avoid home defeat to Luxembourg while Lithuania must win against the Faroe Islands to avoid the relegation play-offs.

• Kazakhstan will be promoted to League B if they beat Belarus in Group C3.

• Latvia, who have a 100% record, will be promoted to League C if they avoid defeat at home to Moldova.

Key dates

Days 5 and 6: September 22-27, 2022
Draw for the final: to be confirmed
Semi-finals: June 14 & 15, 2023

Research by hotel property consultancy Horwath HTL and ABN Amro shows that the Dutch hotel industry is recovering from the Covid-19 pandemic, but experts are still worried about the outlook for the future.

Closures and travel restrictions in 2020 took the Dutch hotel industry from historic highs to historic lows in 2020. Hotel occupancy was 78% in 2019 but fell to 34% in 2020.

This number jumped to 39% in 2021 and experts say it will likely reach 62% by the end of 2022. “After the lifting of the last restrictive measures in March 2022, a strong recovery is visible,” the report states. . The research is based on survey data from 400 hotels in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

The cost of hotel rooms has also increased. The average price of a room has fallen from €87 in 2020 to €88 in 2021, but this is still 17% lower than the 2019 price of €120. The report estimates that the final average price will be €125 by the end of the year.

Dutch bank ABN Amro expects Amsterdam to welcome 18 million visitors by the end of the year. This number is important because the city council considers it the maximum number of visitors the capital wants in a year.

Mayor Femke Halsema has compiled a list of ideas to reduce tourist numbers, including raising tourist taxes, charging more for low-cost airlines and attracting tourists to areas away from the city center.

The bank warned that a tourist tax could simply push tourists to other cities for the evening, who then come to Amsterdam during the day.

The number of available hotel rooms in surrounding towns has increased by 40% according to the report. “Revelers come home in the middle of the night and spend the night elsewhere. Thirty to 45 minutes by taxi or train will not deter them,” the report notes.

Airbus has signed contracts with the Ministries of Defense of the Czech Republic and the Netherlands to provide satellite communications for a period of 15 years. The armed forces of the Czech Republic and the Netherlands will use two and three channels respectively of the payload hosted by Airbus military UHF (ultra high frequency) communications on board the EUTELSAT 36D telecommunications satellite scheduled for launch in 2024.

With this new UHF payload, Airbus will be able to offer a new UHF communication service to the armed forces, in particular those of European countries and NATO allies. The UHF frequency band being a relatively scarce orbital resource, this offer will compensate for the lack of capacity in the world. Airbus has already signed several firm orders for this capability, well ahead of the satellite’s planned launch.

The UHF payload will be operated from the Airbus Network Operations Center in Toulouse. Its 18 UHF channels will allow up to 200 simultaneous communications over Europe, the Middle East, Africa, much of Asia, as well as the Atlantic Ocean (towards the east of Brazil) and the Indian Ocean (west of Australia).

UHF military satcoms are used by the armed forces for operations on land, at sea and in the air. They have a high level of interoperability and are therefore very useful for multinational and coalition operations. The UHF band is very flexible and offers a light, robust and highly secure means of communication. A wide range of terminals usable on land, at sea and in the air is available to meet the needs of different armed forces.

Airbus has unique experience in operating milsatcom UHF services. This new payload will enrich its portfolio throughout the lifetime of the satellite. Airbus is the only private armed forces satcom operator to cover all military (UHF, X, Ka Mil) and commercial (L, C/Ku, Ka) frequency bands and applications.

The EUTELSAT 36D satellite will be built by Airbus on the basis of its Eurostar Neo platform. In addition to the UHF payload, it will also be equipped with 70 Ku-band transponders for TV broadcasting.

Senior officials from Australia and the Netherlands discussed potential opportunities for enhanced space cooperation with Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chairman S Somanath.

Australian Space Agency (ASA) chief Enrico Palermo and Dutch Ambassador to India, Bhutan and Nepal Marten van den Berg visited ISRO headquarters here on Tuesday.

Australia’s active support for the establishment of a temporary ground station on Cocos (Keeling) Island for India’s Gaganyaan missions, potential opportunities for cooperation in the fields of Earth observation, satellite navigation, space situational awareness and weather and climate studies using satellite data were the highlights of the discussion, according to ISRO.

In a separate meeting between the Ambassador of the Netherlands and the President of ISRO, in addition to ongoing interactions for cooperation in remote sensing applications focusing on air pollution and water management , potential opportunities for cooperation in space astronomy were discussed.

“Areas to improve the interaction between Indian and Dutch industries and academic institutes were also discussed,” an ISRO statement said.

Palermo and Van den Berg also spoke at the 7th “Bengaluru Space Expo 2022”, a three-day international conference and exhibition, which ended on Wednesday.

Highlighting the strong commercial ties in space between Australia and India, six separate memoranda from the Australian-Indian space industry were exchanged at the inauguration of the summit.

“Australia continues to seek new ways to improve its space collaboration with India,” Palermo said.

“The establishment of a Consulate General in Bangalore from 2023 will enable us to further develop the spatial relationship,” he added.

Somanath, also a secretary in the Space Department, said: ”They (Australia) have been successful in attracting (Indian) start-ups to work together. It shows that Australia is also open to launching our satellites from their land sometimes, and vice versa.” Palermo and his delegation also visited ISRO’s Human Space Flight Center (HSFC) and the facilities of integration and test of satellites from the UR Rao Satellite Center (URSC) here.
