“I also work from home most of the week. The best we can do, also for the economy, is to get the virus under control. I see with sorrow how companies like Driving4u bear the financial consequences. It is also hard for the port, hotels, agencies and shipping companies. Through the support packages, the cabinet is doing everything in its power to guide companies through this difficult period.


“Feyenoord? Well. I miss it very much. I can't get used to the canned sound on TV. And I miss the people around me in the profession. Although compared to the misery of people who are ill and people in healthcare, of course, peanuts. ”

In Rotterdam we are not only proud of our port. The port is in our DNA and is good for many thousands of jobs. I think it's amazing how it is freight transport in the port has been able to continue in recent months and how many companies, large and small, roll up their sleeves in Rotterdam have made an effort to keep afloat with creative ideas.

But for service providers in passenger transport, including you, came the things to a stop. Rolling up your sleeves and getting stronger was not an option, because in your industry is an unprecedented silence. Yet I also see you with might and main does what is possible to end this intense time and as soon as the weather is possible, to start running. I have a deep respect for that. You represent the famous Rotterdam mentality of not shit, but brushing.

Nevertheless, the coming months will remain exciting and challenging. We need one more time and no one knows how long. We cling to hope and perspective. The Municipality of Rotterdam is doing everything it can to create that perspective offer. Under the name Rotterdam. Stronger Door, we continuously work on large ones and small measures to help the city and port get through the crisis as well as possible to drag. Just like you, we do not look at what is not possible (anymore), but at what is and is possible at the same time working towards a speedy recovery of our economy after the crisis. We have already started doing this: we invest and we innovate out of the crisis and ensure that the city and port ultimately emerge stronger from this. We do not do this alone, but together with the city.

The gigantic job engine that is our port must keep going. The support packages from The Hague help with this and we will remain with the cabinet lobby for support and perspective. In the meantime, the municipality stands Rotterdam ready for you as an entrepreneur. Know the Corona counter for entrepreneurs can be found via We will help you quickly with that all kinds of questions or we will guide you through the many support schemes that are available rigged.

Now it hurts, but let's go with it each other ensure that we are ready when the world returns little by little may open.
