Shortages in skilled labor, energy, housing and land for commercial development related to the right Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) strategy: Should we ignore, accept or embrace?
On Monday July 3, EACC Netherlands and its Premium Member Archipel Tax Advice co-host a roundtable session with Hilde van der Meer, Commissioner of the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA).
We will continue last year’s conversation with the NFIA and our members on its strategic focus from ‘Volume to Value’. In particular, we will discuss the impact of aligning its Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) policy with deficiencies in the Dutch business climate.
As a heads up, this means the acquisition strategy is now merely focusing on attracting companies that contribute to the 3 main areas in transition. These are:
- Climate & Energy
- Digitalisation & Key Technologies
- Circulair Economy
Consequently, NFIA will pivot its resources towards the following sectors (and niches):
- Agrifood (alternative proteins)
- Chemicals (circular)
- Sustainable energy (hydrogen)
- High-Tech Systems & Materials (quantum)
- ICT (AI)
- Life Sciences & Health (regenerative medicine)
It will be interesting for our members to address these new insights with the NFIA and to discuss the impact on the competitive position of the Netherlands, compared to other European countries.
The session will be organized in a roundtable setting, while Archipel Tax Advice will host us at their offices in Amsterdam.
