The Hague is a city that matters. In The Hague over 160 international organisations, knowledge institutions, NGO’s and more are working towards peace and justice every day. Its heritage of being a decision-making and influential place has developed into a reputation of it being the international city of peace and justice. The Hague is a meaningful place, where the world unites to tackle some of the biggest challenges of our time. Here, organisations can unite, make progress, make decisions and move forward with confidence.
World-renowned institutions are established in The Hague, and economic clusters such as Energy, Finance & Legal and ICT & Telecom are well-represented here. Not surprisingly, companies like Shell, Total, Siemens, Huawei, KPN, T-Mobile, AT&T, ING and Amazon have chosen to locate their head office or important operations in The Hague.
With the presence of The Hague University of Applied Sciences, as well as six universities within an hour’s reach, means access to cutting edge research and innovations in the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine, as well as a steady stream of highly educated talent to the city.
One of the things that especially distinguishes The Hague is the excellent cooperation that exists between business, government and knowledge institutions, as well as within the economic clusters. That means plentiful reserves of knowledge and talent to draw on. A case in point is The Hague Security Delta, the largest security cluster in Europe. More than 13,000 people work there in some 400 organisations to improve cyber security around the world.
The Hague is a meeting destination that works, with a dedicated convention facility, wide range of hotels, and easy logistics. The city is safe and endowed with reliable infrastructure, enabling it to handle a large variety of events. It has excellent accessibility from two international airports. The Hague, with its timeless architecture and attractive coastline, serves as both the seat of the Dutch government and the official residence of the Dutch royal family. The city offers a range of interesting tourist attractions, rich cultural offerings and fine restaurants.
This is the opportunity.
