Holland+You is a platform initiated by the Dutch economic network in the GCC to further strengthen business relationships between the Netherlands and the GCC countries.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a political and economic union of Arab states bordering the Gulf. It was established in 1981 and its 6 members are the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Bahrain.

Since the discovery of oil, the GCC region has undergone a profound transformation and is now home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world. Today, the governments of the GCC countries undertake successful efforts to diversify their economies away from dependence on hydrocarbon industries. These diversified growth sectors, such as finance, logistics, aviation, communications, healthcare and tourism provide abundant business opportunities.

Trade between the Netherlands and the GCC region

A large number of Dutch companies, both multinationals and SMEs, is already doing business in the region. Increasingly, this is done with a local presence and country visits. Trade missions, economic diplomacy initiatives, delegations and joint submissions for exhibitions are organized from the Netherlands to the GCC countries.

Dutch Economic Network in the GCC

The Dutch economic network in the GCC countries comprises of the embassies in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Abu Dhabi (UAE), Muscat (Oman), Doha (Qatar, in Dutch) and Kuwait City (Kuwait), and the consulate general in Dubai (UAE).

The network offers a number of services that can help Dutch businesses explore opportunities and establish your business within the GCC. These services focus on providing market information, identifying potential partners and advising you in setting up a business.
