In 2020, over 103 million US dollars worth of Dutch greenhouse materials went to China, pointed out Martin Olde Monnikhof, former Dutch agricultural consul in the United States, South Africa, and China.

The list elicited mixed reactions. On the one hand, some spoke of 'good developments', on the other hand, there were concerns about whether 'we should be happy with the large Chinese influence'.
