Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission donates 5,000 masks

In keeping with the longstanding friendship between the cities and ports of Shanghai and Rotterdam, the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission has donated 5,000 single-use facemasks to support the Netherlands in these difficult times.

Shanghai and Rotterdam have been sister ports since 2005 and can look back on many years of friendly relations and fruitful cooperation. As printed on the boxes containing the facemasks: ‘Work Together, Overcome Challenges’. We believe that by standing together, the two cities and ports can get through this challenging period. We look forward continuing our close and fruitful partnership in the months ahead.
