The Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte recently stated that the Belt and Road Initiative by China offers a number of opportunities that make it attractive for Dutch firms.
“Of course Dutch companies are very much interested in Belt and Road.”
He said that the BRI involves great investment in infrastructure and that is where Dutch firms can help China with their expertise in areas such as maritime logistics and port development, road construction and more.
More than 1,000 Dutch firms operate in China, at around 1,500 sites according to the minister. He added that Dutch companies are in favor of doing business in China.
