Brexit Brings The Netherlands New Companies

Roughly 1 in 5 of the new nearly 400 new companies arriving in The Netherlands last year came due to Brexit, a new study says.

The study, released by the Dutch foreign investment agency NFIA, says a total of 140 companies have entered Holland due to Brexit, and will create an 4,000 jobs as a result.

In 2019, 78 of the record 397 firms moving to The Netherlands did so because of Brexit. The largest number of companies came from North America and Asia (94 and 93 respectively), followed by Europe at 55.

Over the next three years, NFIA expects the new companies to create 14,000 jobs and invest €4.3 billion.
