Partners for International Business
With Partners for International Business (PIB), the Dutch government aspires a partnership with the private commercial sector.
This program, organised by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency, focuses on groups of companies, possibly supplemented with research institutes, who wish to enter a foreign market jointly. Within this approach a coordinated strategy rather than stand-alone activities is applied. Through economic diplomacy, the government tries to eliminate trade and investment barriers, so that entrepreneurs can seize opportunities. PIB focuses on Dutch companies in the top sectors Energy, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Creative Industry, Water, Agrifood, Horticulture, High Tech Systems and Materials (including aviation, logistics and chemistry) and internationalization strategies that focus on specific countries.
