Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
Gerard Bolder, general director of Ford Nederland B.V., sounds the gong to kick off Ford’s year of sustainability and innovation.
According to Bolder, “Ford puts advanced and sustainable technology within the reach of a wide public. Ford’s range of models is already one of the cleanest in Europe. In 2012 our sustainable models will be surprising and convincing. I think it is an honour to launch Ford’s year of sustainability and innovation at this gong ceremony.” Ford Motor Company is listed on NYSE Euronext.
