Social Sofa in Changzhou
In 2012 the cities of Tilburg and Changzhou received an award for their sustainable relationship in the fields of economy, culture and education. “An honourable prize”, according to alderman Erik de Ridder (Economic Affairs). “It is a crowning achievement of our sister city relationship with Changzhou, which has lasted for fifteen years and which focuses mainly on cooperation in the economic, cultural and educational fields. Relations between Tilburg and Changzhou are more than excellent. In 2013 we want to participate in a major flower exhibition in Changzhou, the Flower Expo. This event offers opportunities to bring our regional business and educational institutions into contact with Chinese entrepreneurs and educational organisations.
