China to boost Dutch economy
Twenty Chinese companies have committed themselves to investing EUR 683 million in the Netherlands.
The Hague--At a conference in The Hague Chinese investors signed twenty contracts, the biggest of which involves a EUR 300 million investment in real estate. The Chinese are also putting money into cleaner energy and ship building.
Twelve other Chinese companies signed a letter of intent to invest in the Dutch economy.
Deputy Economy Minister Frank Heemskerk reacted favourably to the deals. "They help Chinese companies in getting a foothold in The Netherlands. This provides new opportunities for Dutch enterprise, and strengthens our position as gateway to Europe," Heemskerk said.
The two-day conference in the Dutch political capital was organised by Wecba, China's biggest commercial association, representing the top 500 Chinese companies. The association announced it is opening a permanent office in the Netherlands.
