Alphen aan den Rijn (April 20, 2012) - Wolters Kluwer, a market-leading global
information services company focused on professionals, today welcomed a Chinese
delegation with representatives of some of the most prominent institutions in
Chinese publishing. CEO Nancy McKinstry met with Mr. Tan Yue, President of China
Publishing Group Corporation (CPGC), Mr. Yu, President of Commercial Press, and
other executives to discuss their shared vision and perspective on the growth of
the Chinese market and customers' needs.

Earlier this week, Wolters Kluwer signed a strategic alliance with CPGC at the
London Book Fair. According to the agreement, Wolters Kluwer will bring a wealth
of professional content to China, providing the Chinese professional community
with world-class expert information and digital workflow solutions. CPGC can
export and publish Chinese content through Wolters Kluwer's established global
network. The two parties will also expand cooperation in digital product sales.

CEO Nancy McKinstry addressed the delegation, "The growth and progress of the
Chinese publishing industry is significant and something to be proud of. We are
very pleased with our strong relationships that we have built with you and your
colleagues over the past few years. The signing of the strategic alliance
earlier this week with our team in the U.K. is an important step to strengthen
our relationships and show that we have a mutual interest."

Last September at the Beijing International Book Fair Wolters Kluwer signed a
similar agreement with CPGC's subsidiary, the Commercial Press, to present its
publications to the international market through Wolters Kluwer. Meanwhile, the
Commercial Press has started to introduce a series of Wolters Kluwer
publications in translation to Chinese readers.

Also at the 2011 Beijing Book Fair, Nancy McKinstry was appointed by the Chinese
State Council Information Office to become a member of the Foreign Consultant
Committee. This influential Committee aims to promote the collaboration between
local and global publishers to link China with the rest of the world.
