Company Profile

Company Profile
The Agency for International Business and Cooperation (EVD) is a bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs. It is the central organ of the Dutch government responsible for promoting the international presence of Dutch companies in foreign markets and for supporting private sector development in emerging markets. The agency provides Dutch companies with information and services critical for the pursuit of new opportunities in all markets. Additionally, it also provides financial support for activities contributing to sustainable private sector development in emerging markets.

Each year it organizes approximately 60 major international promotional events; for example by participating in trade shows and organizing internal and external trade missions. A central element of these missions is matchmaking; a process via which Dutch enterprises are introduced to others in the European Union and throughout the rest of the world. These activities are often organized in co-operation with Dutch trade and industry associations and are generally focussed on specific economic sectors.

The agency’s staff has in-depth knowledge of international markets and is well positioned to bring Dutch companies in contact with international trade experts, decision makers, potential customers and partners in overseas markets.

Through its international network, website and database, the Agency – acting closely with the Dutch Diplomatic Missions and Netherlands Business Support Offices – is able to provide useful business leads and contacts. In addition, the Agency supplies detailed information regarding the Dutch economy.
