The symbolic stone laying for a new head office building of the Surinamese Beer Brewery took place yesterday. This memorable event took place in the presence of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Business and International Cooperation, Albert Ramdin, and colleague Stef Blok of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The Surinaamse Bierbrouwerij is one of the oldest companies in Suriname, which is almost sixty years old. Due to the fact that Amstel Brouwerij NV was a shareholder of this Surinamese company in the Netherlands at the time and was taken over by Heineken NV since 1968, this stone laying was done by these ministers in that respect. Despite difficult times, this renowned company still has confidence in the Surinamese economy.
After the speech of Reinoud Ottervanger, General Director of Surinamese Brewery, both ministers placed a building block. After that, the already completed building was sprayed with Parbo beer in the traditional way. This new investment, which is seen as modernization, is appreciated by Minister Ramdin. The minister indicated that stimulating business is in line with the policy of the Santokhi government.
