The Netherlands fifth best Western European country to invest in
The Netherlands has been ranked as the fifth best Western European country to invest in, according to the "Global Best to Invest Report."
The Best to Invest Report
Site Selection magazine, a magazine concerned with the potential for and developments of corporate business areas around the world, has now published five editions of it's "Global Best to Invest Report," ranking both national Investment Promotion Agencies and metropolitan areas on their ability to generate investment.
The ranking was based on a weighted assessment: each investment agency and metropolitan area was ranked on the growth of new facilities, capital investment and job creation, but also on their Location Rank and Competitiveness Score, calculated by the website LocationSelector.com.
The Netherlands as a business hub
The Netherlands, and therefore the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency, was ranked as the fifth best country to invest in following the above methodology, while Amsterdam was ranked as the ninth best metropolitan area to invest in.
This recent ranking follows a positive trend, whereby the Netherlands was, earlier this year, ranked as the best country in Europe in which to do business.
