Economic Network


The Dutch government has a worldwide economic network with more than 150 embassies, consulates and trade offices (NBSOs) abroad. The economic network supports Dutch companies in the economic sector that are interested in doing business abroad.

Where we are based

Economic officers are located in the economic department of the Netherlands embassies and consulates in more than 70 countries. The officers provide assistance to Dutch entrepreneurs, companies and knowledge institutions.

What we do

Economic officers identify opportunities on foreign markets and have an extensive network in the country. They provide requested trade information, potential network partners, contact details from organisations that can provide support locally, legislation and help with other relevant topics. Throughout the year, economic officers also organise trade and networking events, including economic missions. There are thus multiple reasons for contacting the economic network to help you prepare to do business internationally.
