Wittenborg director Peter Birdsall assisted Neso Beijing on its stand at the 2 day Dutch Brasserie held as part of the Dutch Day celebrations in Shanghai, surrounding Queens Day and the coronation of the new King, Willem-Alexander. The stands were situated Jing An park, just of the famous central Nanjing Road in Shanghai's central shopping area.
The brasserie was opened by the Dutch Consul General in Shanghai, Mr Peter Potman and was visited by many local Chinese, interested in what was going on, and getting a small taste and introduction to the Netherlands, however the stands were also an attraction for Dutch living in Shanghai, to get together and meet with both new and familiar faces.
Alongside promoting Dutch Higher Education from the Neso Stand, Peter took time to speak to Dutch business people and entrepreneurs living and working in Shanghai. "I was impressed by the numbers of Dutch living and starting businesses in China from their Shanghai base. I spoke to Entrepreneurs doing business in areas such as technology, design, architecture and real estate, and got a real idea of the level of Dutch entrepreneurship taking place."
The Dutch Days in Shanghai have been organised by the Netherlands Consulate in Shanghai.
