The sister relationship between Shanghai and Rotterdam was established in 1979. Since then, the cities have been cooperating in fields like trade, investment, urban development, environmental protection, health, culture, and education. The Rotterdam – Zuid Holland Garden is one more example of this cooperation.

The city of Municipality Rotterdam and the province of Zuid Holland will promote innovative solutions for climate resilience and horticulture at the Chongming Flower expo 2021. Dutch Sino Business Promotions supports PZH and Rotterdam to showcase its own concept garden at the Expo, together with Green Art International and Shanghai Yuanlin, as an example of the cooperation between Rotterdam/Zuid Holland and Shanghai (Chongming).
