In total, 305 foreign firms agreed to set up in business in the Netherlands last year down 25% on 2019, Dutch foreign investment agency NFIA said on Thursday. One third of the new arrivals is based in the Amsterdam area, creating nearly 2,000 new jobs.

The drop in foreign investment is mainly due to coronavirus but also to the fact the Dutch investment climate has become less attractive, NFIA chief Jeroen Nijland told Radio 1 news.

The investment climate is still good but uncertainty about the rules on dealing with nitrogen compound pollution had an impact, as did changes to the tax regime, he said.
