The Netherlands in General

Known for centuries as a nation of successful traders, the Dutch are internationally oriented by nature and know instinctively how to anticipate and fulfill the needs of a customer, no matter where he or she is based. Blessed with a well-educated and motivated workforce, the Netherlands offers to international businesses this key resource that has always proven itself to be innovative, flexible and responsive to ever-changing market conditions and trends. Building on these natural advantages of the country’s labor force, the pro-business Dutch government has put policies in place that reinforce the permanent attractions of the Netherlands for foreign investors. Its economic policies have earned the respect of other governments and international businesses worldwide, as its fostering of sound and structured relations between unions and employers.

Globalization, the hallmark of the world economy in the 21st century, has become central to maintaining a competitive edge for major corporations. Thus, establishing a corporate presence in the European market, the largest consumer and industrial market in the world, is seen to be a prerequisite for organizations’ overall goals. The Netherlands is proud of its role in this advancing process, as illustrated by the fact that no less an authority than the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has declared the Netherlands to be the number fourteen country in the world (and number four in Europe) to do business in over the next five years (2012-2016).
