The Dutch, and ‘Rotterdammers’ in particular, have always been exceptionally strong in the field of trade. Within our city, Rotterdam Partners facilitates global trade and international expansion. We do this in close collaboration with the municipality of Rotterdam and our extensive network of partners within and beyond our city’s borders. We both organise trade missions ourselves, and we actively participate in incoming and outgoing trade missions. These trade missions are always placed within a broader context of trade expansion programs for specific sectors or countries.2019 mission 'Shanghai - Rotterdam 40 years sister city relationship'
