The CBIN committee charged with attracting foreign businesses to the Netherlands brought in 113 new investment projects in 2006 but had topped that figure by the end of August 2007, the Financieele Dagblad reports on Wednesday.

American companies are the biggest foreign investors, followed by Japanese, British and German firms. South Korean, Chinese and Indian investment is on the rise, the paper says.
