Lucknow, Nov 14 (IANS) Dutch Ambassador to India Alphonsus Stoelinga on Tuesday announced that the Netherlands has opened a consulate in Lucknow to boost trade ties between his country and the state of Uttar Pradesh.

Ambassador Stoelinga also stated that the consulate of his country in Lucknow was first outside the metropolitan cities in India.

The visiting dignitary also expressed hope that the consulate would help strike closer bonding between the industries of both Uttar Pradesh and the Netherlands and that trade would increase between the two.
