12,000 visitors to emigration fair

On Dutch teletext this morning:

"The Emigratiebeurs (emigration fair) in Nieuwegein attracted by a record 12,000 visitors. Among the visitors were many young families. Still popular are countries like Canada, Sweden and Australia."1)

The emigratiebeurs is an annual two-day event, with exhibitions and presentations aimed at prospective emigrants. The post-war emigration peak is long past, but emigration remains popular, and, like 60 years ago, the popular emigration countries are Canada and Australia.

The emigratiebeurs website is also available in English.

1)Translation by me. Original Dutch text of the news item: "De Emigratiebeurs in Nieuwegein heeft een recordaantal van 12.000 bezoekers getrokken. Onder het publiek waren veel jonge gezinnen. In trek zijn nog steeds landen als Canada, Zweden en Australiƫ."
