Are you interested in expanding your business to the Greater Bay Area? And you want to learn more about the region? Take your chance and join our webinar series!

The Greater Bay Area (GBA) consists of nine cities and two special administrative regions (Hong Kong and Macao)  in south China. This region is a very important area for the innovative driven development in China. In 2030, it is expected that the region will play a leading role in advanced production techniques, innovation, trade and finance and shipping. Not only in China but in the whole world.

Therefore, the Consulates-General of the Netherlands in Hong Kong and in Guangzhou, the Benelux Chamber of Commerce Pearl River Delta (BenCham PRD) and the Dutch Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (DutchCham HK) and NLinBusiness have joined hands to set up a webinar series on what is happening in and the business opportunities of the Greater Bay Area for Dutch SME’s. We also invite logistics related companies from Guangdong or Hong Kong to participate.

This second webinar of the GBA webinar series will focus on the logistics sector, both for Dutch entrepreneurs in the Netherlands and those based in the GBA. A short introduction of trade and logistical cooperation between the Netherlands and the GBA shall be provided. Followed by an outline of the business development in the logistic sector in China by Nederland Distributieland (NDL). In addition, the Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port, will share their experience in doing business and collaborations with partners in the GBA. Thereafter, FreigthAmigo, a FreighTech company based in Hong Kong, will present their views on   logistics sector transition and trade development between the EU/NL and China, especially the GBA. The webinar will conclude with a Q & A session. The webinar will be moderated by Remco Buurman, managing director at NDL.
