During this technology innovation mission in March 2015 Chinese companies from Hebei and Shanghai visited the Netherlands and Germany. The program started in Amsterdam, where after a short cultural introduction the Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship was visited, and the Bio Science park in Leiden. On Tuesday the group was received by the Commissioner of the King in the province of Overijssel, Mrs.Bijleveld-Schouten. In the afternoon the Experimental Center for Technical Medicine and the High Tech Factory were visited, both in Enschede.
Key component of the mission was individual matchmaking, where Alliance experts had arranged meetings between the Chinese companies and potential Dutch business partners. From both sides these talks were evaluated as very positive and companies will follow up on these in the future.
The last part of the mission was in Germany. With a presentation on doing business in Germany by NordRhein Westphalen International and a visit to Leica Camera's and a wine tasting the mission was concluded.
