Letter on investment climate
The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs published a letter with a broad view on improving the Dutch investment climate to keep and attract foreign businesses. The government targets all businesses that are willing to build a substantial presence in the Netherlands. Specific focus sectors include IT, Life Sciences & Health, AgriFood, High Tech Systems & Materials, Chemicals and (sustainable) Energy. The letter does not yet contain a response to the recent Report on the taxation of multinationals, but acknowledges the importance of a competitive and predictable tax system for maintaining an attractive Dutch investment climate.
