The HortiEXPO 2019 (April 2019) and the Winter Olympic 2022 will be organized in this area.The major reason for this delegation to visit the Netherlands was to promote the HortiEXPO 2019. The head of the delegation, Deputy District-mayor Mr. Wu Shijiang, who is responsible for the HortiEXPO affairs, gave a presentation to the Dutch audience during the agro-food workshop at the 2017 China Business Week. Several Dutch companies are coordinating with the Beijing EXPO Bureau and the District Government of Yanqing about their participation. Since agri-horticulture is one of the top sectors of Province of Zuid-Holland in China, the provincial government will continue to provide necessary support. During their stay in the Netherlands, the delegation also visited Delphy (Dutch-Sino Solar Greenhouse Demonstration Project) and Anthura Group in Bleiswijk.
