“I am happy to see that RCRO has contributed significantly to closer friendship between Shanghai and Rotterdam; and has proven to be of importance to both government and business."

Mr. Ruud Lubbers
Prime Minister of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (1982-1994)


“As new Consul-General in Chongqing, I had to rely to a large extent on RCRO, Chongqing branch, for on-the-ground support during the start-up phase of the Consulate-General. Without that support, the new Consulate-General would not have been established as speedily as it was. Currently, the CG and RCRO Chongqing share the same office, thereby bundling Dutch critical mass in Chongqing and mutually reinforcing each other’s activities”

Mr. Guido Tielman
Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Chongqing


“I would like to compliment the management and staff of RCRO as well as its Board, partners, and sponsors on reaching this milestone and look forward to continued fruitful cooperation.”

Mr. Eric Frank Verwaal

“As Dutch business gateway, RCRO Shanghai has been able to support over 2,000 companies from the Netherlands with their business activities in China and especially to Shanghai; therefore instrumental in promoting Sino-Dutch business relations”

Mr. Ivo W. Opstelten

"Strongly rooted in the business community in the Rotterdam regions, RCRO offers adequate services to Dutch companies to develop business in the fast growing, but challenging Chinese market. This way, RCRO forms a valuable addition to our government network in China, both sides making use of their own strenghts and cooperating wherever we can."

“By making us part of their extensive network and many years of experience in doing business in China, our RCRO participations enable us to quickly develop business starting from scratch. Furthermore, with the Go-West Policy of the Chinese Government, their Chongqing office provides us access to this interesting region and, besides the “eyes” and the “ears”, connects our business with the local counterparts.”

"Koneksie found in RCRO a trustworthy partner to provide key support to our operations in China and Taiwan. Communication remains a decisive factor in a world of multi-polarized trade. RCRO proves its ability to bridge the gap and be the “eyes on the ground” in a wide array of circumstances. With Chinese in-depth knowledge and decades of western business experience, the capable team of RCRO understands the needs of foreign companies offering the best of both worlds."
