Danish Export – Water China (DEA-Water China), Danish Environment Protection Agency (DEPA) and Trade Council’s Water and Environment Team (TC-W&E) at the Embassy in Beijing have established a partnership on Water in China.

Through the partnership project U-S-E Water 2.0, we have held technical workshops with 7 local water utilities in China in April, and we are going to have workshops with 5 more Chinese utilities in September. Based on these meetings and our follow ups, we are planning to invite the most potential Chinese water stakeholders to Denmark. The activity will include:       

  • Technical workshops, networking
  • Site visits to Danish Water and Wastewater Plants, and Danish suppliers

The purpose is showcasing Danish green and water technology, branding and marketing as many Danish companies as possible, thus driving a potential and in-depth cooperation on water and environment demo project in China.

Why participate?

  • As a participant, you will:

    • Meet and impress your potential Chinese customers in Denmark
    • Create awareness and influence the decision makers from China
    • Promote your products and solutions to the right contacts
    • Get knowledge of business opportunities and opportunity to sell
    • Be promoted by Danish Ministry of Environment, TC and Danish Export-Water China through a long-run follow up with concrete project cooperation  

    In parallel, this program offers you excellent opportunity to find inspiration by sharing knowledge and experience with the other Danish participating companies.
