France did not sign, however is an active Belt & Road player. Macron himslef formally pledged to works with the Belt & Road. France is in an ‘earth observation’ project to better and earlier predict climate and weather related disasters.
The Netherlands did not sign, but we are doing our best to connect. Currently our logistics sector is in China to promote the Dutch rail road transport capabilities. We do not only have the Port of Rotterdam or Schiphol Airport.
