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.

Under the umbrella of the Amsterdam Economic Board (the Board), representatives from a wide range of businesses, governmental agencies, research institutes, and the trade and industry sector have taken responsibility to work towards strengthening the economy of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. The Board strives to stimulate and support sustainable collaboration, innovation and growth in the region, and strengthen international competitiveness.
