About NOM Foreign Direct Investment

NOM Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) operates as a sort of marketing & sales organization for the Northern Netherlands. We pay visits to many entrepreneurs and companies in the region every year. During these visits, we discuss their success factors, their role in the supply chain, their vision of the future and the obstacles they face. We use this information to come up with propositions for the important sectors with the aim of enticing foreign companies to establish in the Northern Netherlands. It is here that they will find the conditions they need to achieve their ambitions.
