A column by Hans de Boer, Chairman VNO-NCW
The Netherlands should step up its efforts to strengthen the position of the Mainports of Rotterdam and Schiphol Airport to ensure that they remain competitive with the strong global economic competition. These Mainports are the basis of our welfare. Therefore, VNO-NCW has developed a vision for the future of the Mainports, under the heading ‘The Netherlands forever the ultimate hub of the world’. We also present proposals to consolidate and expand the top position of the Mainports.
