On Business

Amsterdam thrives in a variety of different sectors. The city’s metropolitan area is a leading region for research in Life Sciences, in part due to its competitive corporate tax rates and with excellent infrastructure for research. Amsterdam established the world’s first central bank and remains an innovative financial centre in Europe. The city’s real estate is flourishing, and so is its hospitality sector. Room rates in Amsterdam are among the highest in Europe, a reflection of how popular the city is for tourists.
