We Are Business.
Hudson discovered Manhattan on the Dutch ship Halve Maen because we were looking for a faster trade route to the East.
We founded New York, we founded Wall Street. We sparked the pioneering spirit of America. The Netherlands and the USA are now the third largest foreign investors in each other’s countries. We are both dedicated to innovation, free trade and entrepreneurship.
We Are Freedom.
Many of the principles of the Declaration of Independence were inspired by the Netherlands.
The Dutch beliefs in a free mind, humanity and tolerance not only resonate in the American constitution; we also share the same values in how we look at life, people, our work ethic and the world. Culturally, we are the closest to the USA on the European mainland. We are the 51st state.
We Are Reliable.
Dutch people are straightforward.
We say what we think. We do what we promise. A deal is a deal. We are transparent in our ambitions, services, policies and costs. We are among the countries with the least corruption. We have the highest standards in security and ethics.
We Speak Many Languages.
To do business in Europe, you need people who speak many languages
Most Dutch people speak two to three: Dutch, English, German, French, Italian or Spanish. English is taught starting in elementary school. We trade and mix with everyone. We are an international melting pot, and you will find Dutch people all over the world.
