    Her Majesty, the Queen of the Netherlands, officially opened Floriade 2012 on the 5th April in Venlo. Doeke Faber, President of AIPH, Paul Beck, the Floriade’s Managing Director, Zhang Yongli, Vice President of China Forestry Bureau, and Zhang Jun, Ambassador of China in the Netherlands were invited to inaugurate the opening of The China Garden.
     
    China Garden, the biggest outdoor national exhibition pavilion in the Expo, is a masterpiece designed and constructed by NITA, who combined traditional Yangzi Delta garden art with modern technology. Techniques of Chinese classical gardens were applied to exhibit the beauty of the Yangzi Delta artistic conception, and deliver the traditional Chinese culture of human and nature live in harmony.
     
    Multiple advanced technologies such as new tree transplantation, water purification, dry paving road foundation, rain collection system, flowering control and solar-power application were applied in the garden as a perfect combination of modern sustainable technologies with the essence of traditional Chinese garden.
     
    The Floriade themed “Be part of the theatre in nature; get closer to the quality of life” attracted nearly 100 countries and regions to take part in the exhibition. Besides the Netherlands, China, German, Belgium, Spain, Korea and other countries have constructed the national theme pavilions in the Expo Park.
