NOMINATING-OFFICER: Todd Kushner
START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Jeroen Sas is the working level Dutch official charged with
day-to-day coordination, formulation, and articulation of
trade policy. He represents the Netherlands in the
preeminent EU trade policy formulation committee and thus
has influence with the European Commission and other EU
member states. In this capacity he plays a critical role in
determining EU policy in the Doha Round of multilateral
trade negotiations, resolution of U.S.-EU trade disputes,
and other issues important to U.S. economic policy. Within
the Economic Ministry, Jeroen's views are respected, and he
plays the important role of framing trade policy decisions
for action by senior officials. Yet, Jeroen has never
traveled to the United States. His participation in an IV
program would give him a richer, more indepth, and
sympathetic view of the United States than he would get from
reading the press and official statements. His nomination
would support our MPP strategic goal of increasing economic
prosperity and security through increased trade and
investment.

START MEMO NOMINATING-JUSTIFICATION:
Mr. de Lange (34) is a businessman, president of the Dutch
organization of young entrepreneurs (Jong Management) and
president of the Europe-wide organization of young
entrepeneurs. He also sits on the board of the Dutch
employers association. An articulate, emerging leader, de
Lange is involved in national and regional efforts to
stimulate economic growth through entrepreneurship. His
organization lobbies the Dutch government and EU commission
to create an environment more conducive to entrepreneurs and
business, and thus can act as a strong force to enhance the
kinds of policies favored by US businesses. De Lange has
not had significant US experience, and would benefit from a
group or individual program focussing on economic growth,
entrepreneurship, trade and business-government relations in
the U.S.
