China (1.4 billion inhabitants) is one of the largest economies in the world. Every region is different and therefore the market opportunities differ markedly per region. The province of Utrecht signed a Friendship Treaty with the Chinese province of Guangdong in 1995. With 100 million residents, Guangdong is located in the Pearl River Delta, close to Hong Kong, and is one of the most prosperous and fastest-growing provinces in China.
