San Diego and the Netherlands boast comparable capabilities in knowledge-intensive industries, such as personalized medicine, wireless technology, and artificial intelligence. Due to a societal commitment to sustainability, climate action, and social innovation, Dutch cities also routinely rank among the world’s most thriving.

This targeted, cross-sectoral delegation of 25 – 30 senior officials, executives, and academic leadership from San Diego will work to strengthen industry ties and facilitate public-private partnerships that make San Diego more sustainable, affordable, and competitive.
