The Netherlands must not be complacent about retaining its attractiveness to foreign investors, according to a new report by Ernst & Young.
‘The Netherlands is currently losing ground to countries like Belgium and Germany when it comes to distribution and logistics,’ Ernst & Young’s Jan Siemons said.
The country was also being confronted by a decline in the number of foreign HQ investments.
Just over 25% of the 200 managers interviewed for the survey said they expect the Dutch investment climate to improve over the next three years.
The report, drawn up on behalf of the economic affairs ministry, recommends that Holland should capitalise on its strong points by focusing on attracting investment in particular sectors, such as logistics, R&D and international HQs.
