There’s loads of room to grow in Almere, it’s close to the A6 and A27 motorways and has great railway connections. Schiphol’s accessibility is very advantageous, and the working population is relatively young.

Focus for the upcoming years is on ICT, logistics, tourism and recreation, start-ups and scale-ups, and the circular economy.
