On May 16th, the Wageningen Alumni China Chapter organized another successful and joyful event in Beijing.
It was a cloudless sunny day, perfect for a Wageningen-style excursion to the suburb of Beijing. This time we paid a visit to Rui Xue Global Co., Ltd, a horticulture company founded by an alumni couple, Mr. HUANG Ruiqing and Ms. QU Xueping. Both Mr. Huang and Ms. Qu studied in Wageningen in the late 1980s. Mr. Huang further earned his PhD degree in the Netherlands. In 2002 they established Rui Xue Global in Beijing. With close cooperation of Dutch famous companies, Rui Xue Global offers the world-advanced horticultural products in China with the modern professional management. For more information on the products and services of Rui Xue Global, please visit www.ruixueglobal.com.
More than 15 alumni attended the excursion which began with a round of self-introduction of the attendees followed by a presentation given by staff of the company. During the presentation the couple also shared their experiences on entrepreneurship.
Afterwards people dressed up with a white lab coat and visited the greenhouse for Anthurium cultivation. Mr. Huang showed the alumni around in the greenhouse. He demonstrated the advanced horticultural technology from the Netherlands and patiently answered all kinds of questions by the alumni. Moreover, the couple even offered each alumnus/alumna a bouquet and a pot of Anthurium as a souvenir of the visit. At the end of the excursion the couple brought the alumni to a restaurant nearby for a tasty lunch.
In short, it was an informative and also delightful Saturday event. The Wageningen alumni in Beijing look forward to more enjoyable events in the future.
