The Netherlands and the United States have shared trade relations for over 400 years, making the economic ties between our two nations older than America! 

Yearly about $60 billion in US merchandise and services are exported to the Netherlands. Texas, California, Louisiana, Illinois and Washington are the top exporters to the Netherlands. 

The Netherlands is a fixture in the top five of largest foreign investors in the US. The economic ties between the countries support 740,000 American jobs. Simply stated, the US and the Netherlands have a  partnership that works. With its favorable business climate, highly trained workforce and strategic position in Europe, the Netherlands attracts a lot of American businesses too. The US maintains the leading single-country investor overall for the Netherlands.
