For foreign companies wishing to establish their business in the Netherlands and to take advantage of the Dutch business environment as a strategic base to cover Europe, the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) is the first port of call.
The NFIA was established for the specific purpose of helping and advising such companies by providing them with advice, information and practical assistance, quickly and on a confidential basis, as well as providing them access to a broad network of business partners and government institutions, all free of charge.
Founded more than 30 years ago, the NFIA is an operational unit of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. Throughout the years it has supported thousands of companies from all over the world to successfully establish their business in the Netherlands.
NFIA support starts in the country of origin. To that end, the NFIA has offices in Europe (HQ in The Hague, London, Istanbul), the US (Washington, New York, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco), Asia (Tokyo, Osaka, Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Seoul, New Delhi, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur), in the Middle East (Dubai, Tel Aviv) and in Brazil (São Paulo). In addition, the NFIA closely cooperates with Dutch embassies, consulates-general and other organizations that represent the Dutch government around the world.
