Inbound services: Netherlands business network (NBN)

Building bridges between businesses in the Netherlands and the United States.

PwC's Netherlands business network assists companies with expanding their international footprint. If you’re thinking about investing—or already have invested—in the United States or the Netherlands, NBN's bicultural, bilingual advisors can help you navigate regulatory, language, cultural and other business challenges. Backed by our global team of trusted service providers, we can also work with your organization to manage assurance, tax and advisory issues, such as mergers & acquisitions, due diligence, valuations and investment exit strategies.

Why invest in the United States?

The first country to recognize America after it declared independence in 1776, the Netherlands has one of the oldest, continuous bilateral relationships with the United States. The two countries share a liberal economic outlook, commitment to free trade and the promotion of individual freedom and human rights. The Netherlands is also one of the largest foreign investors in the United States, benefitting from America’s stable economic and legal structures and many opportunities for profitable growth.

Why invest in the Netherlands?

Doing business internationally expands a company’s horizons and offers unique opportunities for development and profit building. In a world of rapid economic or political shifts, the Netherlands has proven to be a stable country, with low inflation, relatively low deficits and high labor participation. A strategic gateway to Europe and the Middle East, the Netherlands has one of the most open economies in the world. More than 170 million people live within a 300-mile radius of Amsterdam. In addition, the workforce is highly educated and multilingual, with approximately 90% of the population speaking English. Its world-class infrastructure includes Europe's largest port in Rotterdam, one of the continent’s top five airports and high-speed road, rail and broadband networks.
