Team Foreign Investment Promotion

Key is a hands-on mentality and a quick and efficient work method. The Flevoland Development Agency supports and therefore gives companies just that little extra push they need to get successful. They offer know-how and network for the success of the entrepreneur and act as a match maker, point of contact and guide to the best opportunity. In their role as mediator they offer their wide network helping to build bridges between companies and governmental organizations/institutes.

When investing in your future

The Flevoland Development Agency (OMFL) supports international entrepreneurs who have plans for expansion and investments in Europe and helps the Flevoland-region to attract foreign investors.

They actively cooperate with the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA), an operational unit of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Agriculture and Innovation. It helps and advises foreign companies on the establishment, rolling out and/or expansion of their international activities in the Netherlands. The NFIA has offices in all prominent economies in the world, of which 13 of them are located in Asia, 6 in Northern USA, 1 in South America and 3 in Europe. See the NFIA website for more details.

Investor development

Above mentioned activities are part of our Investor Development program which means we maintain the relation on a regular basis once a foreign company is established in Flevoland. We are more than happy to introduce you to the right people in our network.

We can assist you with below mentioned topics, some examples are:

  • Obtaining work permits for your employees takes a lot of time and effort.
  • A relative of your company’s CEO is coming over and has trouble obtaining a visa.
  • You have questions about tax benefits, income tax, incentives, subsidies etcetera.
  • The road to your premises needs to be reconstructed because it is collapsing but you don’t know who to contact.
  • You are ready for production but cannot find a suitable business case.
  • Your spouse is trying to find a job over here and encounters difficulties finding the right agency.
