Amsterdam has a long history of commercialisation and the trading gene is still rooted in citizens. Right now, there is a pro-business climate and entrepreneurship in the city. Undoubtedly, it is home to tech unicorns such as Booking.com, WeTransfer, etc. that are known globally.
Wondering what makes Amsterdam so irresistible for businesses? Well, 90% of the population in the city speak English fluently and it is quite affordable for expats as compared to many other cities in Europe. Besides this, the impact of Brexit that marks Britain’s departure from the European Union is contributing to the success of Amsterdam in the business sector, especially the financial sector.
