Historical ties between Rotterdam and China

Rotterdam maintains cordial relations with countries and cities all around the world. The city’s connections to various nations date back hundreds of years and encompass commerce, sports and culture. Working in collaboration with Stad en Bedrijf, Rotterdam Partners has developed an interactive timeline showing the relationship between Rotterdam and China. Many key events related to trade and commerce are displayed in this timeline, as well as significant moments in culture.
