A great example of Sino-Dutch collaboration

The Dutch Horticulture Trade Mission to China in November 2023 was a great success! During the fully packed program, Dutch Greenhouse Delta had the opportunity to connect with Chinese horticultural institutions and companies through seminars, horticulture forums, and visits.

We engaged in important discussions on policy, development trends, and future collaboration opportunities for the production of healthy and sustainably grown food. To foster collaborations in the fields of sustainable development, energy usage, applications of smart production technology, logistics, and training.

We share some highlights from this highly successful week in China:
– During the Sino-Dutch Agriculture Conference with the theme “Farming the Future” in Beijing, we deepened collaboration with the China Smart Energy Industry Alliance. This strategic agreement is a significant next step towards realizing our joint ambitions
– At the Sino-Dutch Seminar “Sustainable Development of Modern Facility Agriculture in Mega Cities” in Shanghai, DGD China Director Gert Dral shared DGD’s vision during the keynote speech, emphasizing the importance of the total ecosystem for successful high-tech horticulture.
– We were present at the opening of the Jiashan HX Sino-Dutch Digital Agriculture Science and Innovation Demonstration Center, the first investment project in the Sino-Dutch Agricultural Park. Dutch Greenhouse Delta played a key role in this project and had the honor of witnessing the signing of the second phase of the HX project (20 hectares) in Sino Dutch Agri Park.
– We visited a high-quality facility vegetable project in Nanjing.
– During the Sino-Dutch Horti Exchange Meeting, DGD’s representative Michael Min 闵伟峰 presented the entire industry chain approach model and introduced the member companies of Dutch Greenhouse Delta to the audience.

We can hardly wait to follow up on the insightful discussions we’ve had and to further develop the new collaborations that have emerged. We will keep you informed about the next steps.
