Located at the two ends of Eurasia, the province of Guangdong and the Netherlands have been connected by the ancient Maritime Silk Road since 1600. Through the ancient Maritime Silk Road, “Made in Guangdong” products such as silk, porcelain and artworks were transported by sea from Guangdong to the Netherlands.
As time goes on, exchanges between Guangdong and the Netherlands are no longer limited to trading, but cover extensive areas, such as agriculture, finance and energy, especially regarding the Belt and Road Initiative.
2017 marks the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and the Netherlands, as well as the 20th anniversary of the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Guangzhou.
In this very special year, Newsgd.com invited Mrs. Marjo Crompvoets, Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Guangzhou, to talk about agricultural cooperation between Guangdong and the Netherlands.
