Why is investing in Zuid-Holland a good idea? As one of the twelve provinces in the Netherlands, Zuid-Holland is a prime location, boasting a first-class logistics and technology infrastructure, a competitive fiscal climate, a favourable environment for innovation, one of the most highly educated, flexible and motivated workforces in Europe and an attractive quality of life. Zuid-Holland accounts for over one fifth of the total added value from business activity in the Netherlands. In 2015, the Zuid-Holland economy recorded a growth of 2.2%.
Connected at local, regional, national and international level
Our economy derives much of its vigour and vibrancy from the many cross-sector connections, as growth is increasingly generated by cross-fertilisation between different sectors. An additional bonus is that the sectors themselves have strong international connections. This, combined with the congenial tax regime, makes the region attractive for many different types of companies.
Innovative business activity in Zuid-Holland is supported by a strong knowledge infrastructure and a well-educated population: three universities (Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam) that rank very high internationally and complement each other's specialisations, six universities of applied sciences, and leading applied research institutes such as TNO and Deltares.
