Amsterdam Metropolitan Area is one of the most dynamic regions in the Netherlands!
Amsterdam in Business is an investment agency promoting the region to attract foreign companies to establish European headquarter, marketing & sales office and service center in one of the four cities depending on their profile (Almere, Amsterdam, Haarlemmermeer and Amstelveen).
The mayor of Almere, Mrs. Jorritsma, was previously holding the roles of Minister of commerce, water and infrastructure, Minister of Economic affairs and Deputy Prime Minister. During a prior visit to Shenzhen, she was impressed by the fast development of this metropolitan city, which was just a finishing village 30 years ago. It is interesting to notice that Almere is in a similar situation, a city in fast development among other cities in the Netherlands. The province of Flevoland - where Almere belongs to - is the result of reclaimed land where the whole city has been built from scratch two decades ago. Over the past few years, the region has seen an exponential growth.
Since last year, the city government of Almere has focused on developing a strategic friendship relation with Shenzhen in various areas such as urban planning, education and economic development. Over the past 6 months, delegations from Almere and Shenzhen have travelled between China and the Netherlands – allowing the representatives to establish contacts.
