Paper about the Netherlands and Southern Africa presented at the “International Seminar on The Role of Transnational Corporations in Namibia” at the Sheraton Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C., November 29 - December 2, 1982. Sluiter discussed material and political support from The Netherlands for the Namibian people, particularly but not exclusively for SWAPO; and research on economic links between The Netherlands and Namibia. The paper mentions Working Group Kairos, sanctions against South Africa, and official cultural ties and the sports boycott. The paper reports that, apart from uranium, the principal involvement of Dutch firms appears to be in oil deliveries and imports of minerals. • Government and politics • Aid to SWAPO, ANC and the frontline states • Research • Dutch 1982 Government foreign policy agreement 21 October 1982
