Sport is an important enabler of sustainable development. And a considerable contributer to the Netherlands GDP at 1.1%. With the aspiration of leaving no one behind and its promotion of tolerance and respect, it can be used as a platform to continue advancing economic development, encourage social inclusion and embrace environmental protection.
The Netherlands recognises the growing contribution of sport to the realisation of development and peace. It plays an important part in the promotion of tolerance and respect, as well as the empowerment of women, young people, individuals, communities, health, education and social inclusion objectives.
As a small country, we actively seek international cooperation and adapt quickly towards new challenges. Our long-term public-private approach facilitates the responsible promotion of Dutch businesses, knowledge institutes and the affiliated sector in target markets where our knowledge and solutions are welcomed and of added value.
By teaming up and elevating sport, we can build a better world - one which is healthier, greener and more peaceful. In our country alone, 3,6 billion euro was spent by Dutch people on sport and fitness services. And a staggering 390 million euro goes towards sport partnerships in pro sports. In true sporting spirit, the Netherlands is always in search of new teammates.
