Trade mission in China from 12 to 19 May




在南荷兰省两位副省长的带领下,近50名的企业和科研单位代表参加了五月12-19日为期一周的中国经贸考察团。值得一提的是,南荷兰省团组是首个对外开放参雄安观新区的代表团。南荷兰省在未来将持续在城市可持续发展,水管理和食物供应方面提供大力的支持。此外,此行的另一个重要的目的是参与2018年廊坊国际经济贸易洽谈会,这是过去十年来南荷兰省一直参与的重大活动,今年南荷兰省更受邀于主办单位成为主宾省并提供了500平方米大的客制化展厅供南荷兰省推广使用。

Led by Regional Ministers Adri Bom-Lemstra and Jeannette Baljeu, around 50 representatives of companies, knowledge institutions and authorities in Zuid-Holland are on a trade mission in China from 12 to 19 May inclusive.

The development of the new super-city Xiongan, 100 km to the southeast of Beijing, takes centre stage.

The Regional Ministers and the Zuid-Holland participants in the trade mission are the very first to be shown around the location to be developed. This implements the agreements made in China by the Governor of Hebei and the King's Commissioner Jaap Smit at the beginning of April 2018, to allow the contribution of Zuid-Holland's knowledge and expertise to this mega-project. These contributions mainly regard sustainable urban development, water management and the organisation of food supplies.

International Trade Fair

Another item on the agenda is the participation in the annual Lanfang Trade Fair, the most important international trade fair of the Province of Hebei, with which Zuid-Holland has already cooperated for 10 years. The Chinese partners have constructed a 500m2 promotion pavilion for Zuid-Holland. Zuid-Holland is a 'special guest of honour’ at the fair.

On Sunday, an initial signing moment at the Dutch Embassy in Beijing confirmed that the Chinese company GenScript will open a branch at the Leiden Bio Centre Park. GenScript has 2000 staff, spread over many business locations worldwide.
