Ranked No. 3 in Forbes’s 2018 Best Countries for Business, the Netherlands is a premium business destination for foreign businesses looking to grow cross-border. Located strategically as a gate-way to the rest of Europe, Holland provides an entry into European markets – with access to 95% of Europe’s most lucrative consumer markets within 24 hours reach from Amsterdam or Rotterdam.
With a population of more than 17 million, the Netherlands is the second most densely populated country in Europe. The national language is Dutch, but most Dutch people speak English and German as well. Due to Holland’s supportive corporate tax structure, high educated multilingual workforce and world-class logistics and technological infrastructure, many multinationals – from small and mid-sized to large Fortune 500 companies – have strategically chosen the Netherlands as their gateway to Europe.
