In 2018, 396 foreign investment projects were won in the Netherlands, creating an estimated 9,500 jobs. 75 percent of the foreign investments went to the west of the country.

According to Roel Spee from IBM, it is no wonder that our country is doing well: "The Netherlands has good universities, is easily accessible in logistics and has a leading IT infrastructure."

The ICT sector in particular benefits: more than one in four of the investment projects were in this sector, which would involve 2,737 jobs.  This gives the sector a major boost.
