From 25 to 29 October  an  extensive economic delegation visited China in relation to the Royal visit of their majesties the King and Queen to China. NAFTC organised for part of the Agro, Food and Horticulture companies the match making in Beijing and in Shanghai. On Monday morning 26 October twenty different Dutch companies met with a multiple number of Chinese companies. In Shanghai a smaller part of the companies took part in the match making on Thursday 28th and Friday 29th October as there were also other interesting competing activities such as a visit to Alibaba. But it was not less successful! One of the Chinese companies taking part in Shanghai posted (in Chinese) on WeChat the following: “I am honoured to be invited to the Sino-Dutch matchmaking. I hope we could be the bridge of China and Dutch business and communication.” Interesting was the fact that the meeting turned partly also into an internal match making of the Chinese companies who did not  know each other but could be of substantial value to each other.
