North Netherlands

  1. 1. Welcome to Objective 2 programme North of the Netherlands
  2. 2. 1. Introduction The European Commission has decided to actively participate in the development of the northern part of the Netherlands by co-financing the Objective 2 Programme for the period 2000-2006. The Structural Fund will contribute 341,9 million Euros to the total budget of 1.237,450 million Euros.
  3. 3. 1.2 The map of the eligible area
  4. 4. 1.3 Description of the eligible area The programme involves three provinces in northern Netherlands: Friesland, Groningen and Drenthe. This region of 1.364.000 residents is characterised by a limited economic structure with a small percentage of small- and medium-sized businesses and few local employment initiatives. Historically, the economy in the North has been based upon traditional, labour-intensive industry, such as apparel manufacturing. Today, the proportion of agriculture and industry is still higher than the Dutch average. New sectors, such as telecommunications, medical technology and biotechnology, are beginning to emerge.
  5. 5. 1.3 Description of the eligible area Businesses have difficulty turning a profit because of the uniformity of the economic sector. Yet it is believed that the three provinces in question have great potential and that it will be possible to overcome weaknesses by consolidating economic activity in centralized areas. The concentration of personal and professional spheres in centralised areas allows for urban areas to save time and money, which stimulates economic growth and diversification while favouring the construction of facilities and infrastructure.
