In September and October 2013, Beijing formed the backdrop for Dutch designers, architects and city planners keen to draw the attention of potential Chinese investors, key decision makers in government and industry, and the general public to all that Dutch design has to offer.
The Netherlands will open up a consulate-general in Chongqing, the fastest growing province of China. Minister of Foreign Affairs Timmermans and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi came to this agreement in Peking on June 11, 2013. Both ministers exchanged memoranda to that effect. China will open a consulate-general in Willemstad, Curaçao.
