The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area has all of the key ingredients to be an innovative and economically-strong region. Thanks to eight strong economic clusters (Creative Industries, ICT/e-Science, Life Sciences & Health, Financial & Business Services, Logistics, Horticulture & Agri Food, Tourism & Conferences, and High tech materials), the Amsterdam Area can play a pioneering role both nationally and internationally. In order to fully exploit this potential, collaboration is essential.

The Board strives to stimulate and support sustainable collaboration, innovation and growth in the region, and strengthen international competitiveness.
