RidderzaalOn 15 May 2017 an ACA seminar was held in The Hague on the topic of Better Regulation. The seminar was organized by the Council of State of the Netherlands and was held in the Knight’s Hall (Ridderzaal) situated in the historical Inner Court (Binnenhof). The Knight’s Hall plays an important role in the Dutch political landscape. Every third Tuesday in September, the King addresses the plenary meeting of the Lower House of Parliament and the Senate and delivers the King’s Speech (troonrede) on behalf of the Dutch government reflecting on the past year’s developments and the government’s policy and legislative plans for the coming year. As the historic Inner Court also provides accommodation for the office of the prime minister and the General Affairs ministry, the ACA members were invited to a reception by Prime Minister Mark Rutte himself at the end of the day.
