At the beginning of March 2014, the Belangen Vereniging Franchisenemers Nederland (BVFN), the independent representative of the interests of franchisees in the Netherlands, requested a meeting with the Minister of Economic Affairs in order to discuss various (current) topics relating to franchising. In the meantime, the BVFN has received an invitation from the Ministry of Economic Affairs to inform it of the BVFN’s view on this matter. This meeting will be scheduled shortly. The interests of franchisees in the Netherlands will be addressed by the BVFN in various ways, not just the usefulness of regulations. As a result, the BVFN will report further.
