The Chinese Family Day was organized to provide Chinese expats in the Netherlands with an opportunity to enjoy a day out with their families, whilst bonding and collaborating with Chinese expats from other companies in a casual manner. Furthermore, the families got a special close-up into the functioning of the human body. Especially the children truly enjoyed this part.
