American and Chamber member companies employ over 1.3 million people in the Netherlands. Of these, minority and majority owned American companies directly employ over 210,000 people and are the source of almost 5 percent of the country’s GNP. On a historical-cost basis the total US direct investment position in the Netherlands in 2008 totaled over $440 billion (source: US Dept. of Commerce, Bureau of Economic Analysis). Total assets of US non-bank foreign affiliates in the Netherlands were estimated to total over $1.18 trillion in 2007. Over the past decade alone, US direct investment flows have totaled over $250 billion. American business has had good reason to come to the Netherlands in the past and the Chamber works to ensure they have good reason to stay in the future.
Many Dutch Chamber members are significant investors in the United States. Well over $250 billion of investment has flowed from the Netherlands to the United States – making the Netherlands the fourth largest foreign investor in the US. The common denominator shared by all our members is a belief in the importance of two-way trade and investment between the Netherlands and the United States as an essential basis for creating mutual economic welfare.
Established in 1961 and now in its fifth decade of service to the US business community, the American Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands seeks to further the development of commerce between the United States of America and the Netherlands. AmCham Netherlands encourages and facilitates the transaction of business between both countries and promotes the interests of its members in matters of trade and investment.
