Regional Business Development team for the Gulf region

The Regional Business Development (RBD) team for the Gulf region can offer customized support to Dutch companies in selected projects.

The Regional Business Development (RBD) team for the Gulf region is focused on a strategic approach to offer customized support to Dutch companies in selected projects with high added value for the Netherlands (jobs, earning power, knowledge exchange).

We can assist Dutch businesses for example with their tendering process, setting up consortia and financing structures of projects. Also, we inform about opportunities and tenders in the Gulf region for Dutch companies. The RBD team is visiting the Netherlands on a regular basis to meet with companies and stakeholders.

The RBD team consists of the Head of Regional Business Development and Business Developers based in various countries in the Gulf region. The team operates within the economic diplomacy network of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, utilizing the collective network available. We maintain frequent contacts with Dutch companies active in the Gulf, as well as related ministries and agencies in key sectors both in the Netherlands and in the region.

For more information please contact the RBD-team or any of the Dutch Embassies in the region.
