Maybe it’s because Holland, or we should better say the Netherlands, has historically been a union of provinces, because the quality of life there is good, or because they make it easy for you to work there, but for some reason we do a lot of shipping to the Netherlands. The thing is that many foreigners go there to look for a job, to study and to start a new life. And we can say that they can’t complain.
It’s not only about tulips, clogs, cheese and windmills. Holland has one of the best labor statistics regarding the level of unemployment, that was only a 6.8% last November, in 2015. The economy and trade is focused mainly on the Randstad, whose major cities are Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. Not to forget the treaty they have with their neighboring countries: Benelux, it is the first major economic treaty in Europe, predecessor of modern treaties, including the EU.
All these unions and pacts prove the country’s willingness in promoting freedom, welfare, peace and legal order, and local, external and international policies.
Therefore, the fact that it is one of the most developed states and one of the largest economies in the world doesn’t surprise us. Most of the population works in the service sector, and imports and exports are very important for the development of their commerce. Rotterdam, a city in the convergence between the Rhine and the Meuse, is the strategic point where the greater exchange of goods between Europe and the rest of the world it’s performed, especially in the Europort, which is the largest port in Europe and second of the world.
In terms of density, it is one of the world’s most populous areas, and has no less than ten sites declared World Heritage Site by Unesco, in case you were not yet convinced. One of this places is, or are, the famous water ways of Amsterdam, the capital city and probably the most visited destination in the area, besides being known as the city with more bicycles in it in the world. You just need to take a look at the parking lot of the Main Station. The bike, being the best way of transportation, it’s definitely a lifestyle in the city, regardless of cold, rain or even snow.
In the Netherlands, you speak English
Despite the fact that in the Netherlands the main language is Dutch, most people speak well English, especially in the cities, and also a large percentage of German and French, which makes the communication easier. You don’t need to learn Dutch to live in the country, but if you want to learn it, it sure will be appreciated.
