Distinguished visitors! In 1997, the Netherlands commemorated the Marshall Plan. It was partly thanks to this relief plan that the post-war Netherlands were revitalised fifty years ago. The Marshall Plan was a comprehensive material relief plan which came into effect three years after the Second World War at the initiative of the then American Foreign Secretary, George C. Marshall.

President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary visited Rotterdam to commemorate the anniversary. Bram Peper, former mayor of Rotterdam, and his then wife Neelie Kroes attended the ceremony.
