Tom Visser, project manager for digital radio at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation for the Netherlands, reinforced the message of the Netherlands support of the DAB family of standards by emphasizing that the Netherlands Ministries were "fully committed" to digital radio, and the political climate was right for digital radio in the Netherlands with public and commercial broadcasters and other relevant parties including the ministries working together around the roll-out of digital radio.
