We operate across multiple European countries, and one of our key locations is The Netherlands informally known as Holland. Holland is situated in the western part of Europe. As a nation within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Holland is known for its flat landscapes, extensive canal systems, and iconic windmills. The term "Netherlands" literally translates to "lower countries," reflecting its low elevation and flat topography. Remarkably, 26% of the country is situated below sea level.

The capital city of Holland is Amsterdam, a vibrant metropolis with a rich cultural heritage. The total population of Holland is approximately 17.9 million people. Since 1848, the Netherlands has been a parliamentary constitutional monarchy with a unitary structure. The country has a notable tradition of pillarisation, involving the separation of citizens into groups based on religion and political beliefs. The Netherlands granted women's suffrage in 1919 and achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first country to legalise same-sex marriage in 2001.

The country operates under a constitutional monarchy, with King Willem-Alexander serving as the reigning monarch, and a parliamentary democracy led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte who has served as prime minister of the Netherlands since 2010. With the eleventh-highest per capita income globally, the Netherlands features a mixed-market advanced economy. The Hague serves as the seat of the States General, Cabinet, and Supreme Court. The Port of Rotterdam stands as the busiest in Europe, and Schiphol ranks as the busiest airport in the Netherlands and the fourth busiest in Europe.

The Netherlands holds a prominent position as a founding member of the European Union, Eurozone, G10, NATO, OECD, and WTO. Additionally, it is part of the Schengen Area and the trilateral Benelux Union. The country hosts various intergovernmental organizations and international courts, with many located in The Hague. The official currency in Holland is the Euro, and the country maintains strong connections within the European Union, contributing to its diverse economic landscape.

Holland is recognised for its flourishing industries, including agriculture, trade, and a commitment to sustainable practices. The Netherlands provides a welcoming environment for prospective expats from the UK, offering a gentle transition. Its picturesque landscape, featuring canals, dunes, and dikes, is well-connected by an extensive public transport system comprising trains, trams, and buses. With an exceptional cycling infrastructure, bikes outnumber cars, reflecting a healthy outdoorsy culture that permeates daily life.
