Netherlands Embassy and Consulates China
Wind, water and wide open spaces have shaped the Netherlands and its history. To its inhabitants, the Dutch, water has always been friend and foe. The Netherlands is a relatively small deltaic region in Western Europe. Three major rivers, the Rhine, the Meuse and the Scheldt, fan out across the country before flowing into the North Sea.
The Netherlands is a world leader when it comes to the creative industries. Although a small country, it is one of the biggest export countries of creative services in the world. Creativity and innovation are key aspects of this sector.
The Dutch diplomatic network to China represents Dutch citizens and Dutch interests in China. The netwerk consists of the Embassy in Beijing and Consulates-General in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing and Hong Kong, as well as six Netherlands Business Support Offices (NBSO's) in second tier cities.
