The province of Utrecht signed a Friendship Treaty with the Chinese province of Guangdong in 1995. Within the framework of this treaty -- and in co-operation with the Chamber of Commerce and the Ministries of Economic and Foreign Affairs -- various trading delegations have engaged in productive visits to China under the leadership of the King’s Commissioner. These delegations gives rise to an exchange of knowledge and expertise. Trading relations have been initiated and considerable reciprocal investment schemes have been discussed.
Activities in many areas
Thanks to the sustained growth of the Chinese economy and the unique Friendship Treaty, we expect to organise activities in many areas in the future, leading to tangible results for Utrecht-based companies and knowledge institutes and for the city itself.
