Over the past years, partly thanks to the efforts of the province of Utrecht and to co-operation between numerous partners, a number of international events have been organised in various fields. These events help Utrecht stand out in various sectors, such as economy, culture and sustainability. As a result of a policy focus sustained for years, dozens of Japanese companies have chosen to establish themselves in Utrecht and have generated employment and income for a significant number of people.
Contacts in China, India and other countries
The Speelklok museum maintains rewarding relations with China, and the recently opened Sustainable Earth Research Centre in Utrecht has already established contacts in India. Utrecht University maintains important scientific contacts in many countries, including China and India.
