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, the first delegation visit program will include:

  1. Delegation visits to 5-7 water utilities in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Guangdong province (1week)
  2. Visits to 2 of our WWTP partners (2 days)
  3. Member meeting at AVK Shanghai (1 day)  

Why participate?

  • As a participant, you will:

    • Meet and build relations with major water utilities in 3 economic provinces in China, who have shown strong interests in Danish technology during the pre-meetings we have had.
    • Promote your products and solutions to the right contacts from relevant departments and have dialogue with the decision makers in the companies. 
    • Gain an understanding of market need and development trends in the water industry in the region.
    • Get knowledge of business opportunities and opportunity to sell.
    • Be promoted by TC and Danish Export-Water China through a long-run follow up with concrete project cooperation based on a structured agreement.    

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

    See the findings of our pre-meetings with Chinese utilities here.

  • "The technical workshops in 2021 have had a very positive effect on the promotions and sales of our company in South China. Following these workshops, we have till now sold for about 2million CNY to Shenzhen Water, and 1.2million CNY to China Everbright Water. In addition, we have established partnership with two other connections, and I believe that there will be a breakthrough in the near future."
