China (1.4 billion inhabitants) is one of the largest economies in the world. Every region is different, which means market opportunities differ within the country. 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. Trading relations have intensified over the years thanks to the Friendship Treaty and the sustained growth of the Chinese economy. Representatives of Utrecht Region and Guangdong visit each other regularly to explore new roads for cooperation and enter into fresh partnerships or extend existing ones.
