Relationship with China

Since 1999, there is an economical relationship between the province of Flevoland and the province of Zhejiang in China. There are visits between these provinces on a regular basis.

In 2010 the OMFL and the Dutch Chamber of Commerce organized two trade missions to Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai. During both missions the focus was on agribusiness and composites (new materials) as well as geomatics. The OMFL was present at and presented itself at the World Expo in Shanghai.

Two Memory of Understandings (MOU’s) were signed between the both provinces in Hangzhou. One between the OMFL and the "Department of Science and Technology”, the other with the “Department for Commerce" of the province of Zhejiang.


This project is partly financed with support from the European Fund for Regional Development from The European Comission and province of Flevoland.
