Circular economy track

The trade mission is led by the Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Liesje Schreinemacher; with a contribution from the State Secretary for Infrastructure and Water Management, Vivianne Heijnen.

Sustainability and the strategy to achieve sustainability are playing an important role in China. Especially food, waste, and energy are topics that get much attention. China continues to look for new knowledge and technology for circular economy transition. With the knowledge and expertise in the field of sustainable energy, The Netherlands is an interesting potential partner for China. This offers opportunities for Dutch companies and knowledge institutions.

The circular economy track is open to companies and knowledge institutions that are active in:

Smart and circular solutions in the field of construction and infrastructure, such as:

  • innovations for prevention, sorting, and recycling for high-quality reuse of construction and demolition waste;
