The Netherlands reports about ten companies affiliated with Brexit, who are moving from the United Kingdom



The combined steps of 42 companies will translate into a shift of less than 2,000 jobs and an investment of 291 million euros, according to a Dutch foreign investment agency.

In The Hague, more than 40 companies moved or said they would move from Great Britain to the Netherlands in response to Brexit's uncertainty, according to the Dutch authorities.

The combined steps of 42 companies will translate into a shift of less than 2,000 jobs and an investment of 291 million euros, according to a Dutch foreign investment agency.

Most of the companies are British, some from Asia or the USA.

The Dutch government welcomed these figures as Economy Minister Eric Wiebes said that "due to the growing international uncertainty about Brexit and the changing global trade policies, the importance of a good Dutch business environment for all of us is constantly increasing."

The list includes the Norinchukin Japanese investment bank, TVT Media media, MarketAxess and Azimo financial services providers and UK P & I maritime insurance company.

Some companies have also tried to move certain activities to others in the European Union, including Germany, France and Ireland, he said.

In addition to relocation, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), an EU agency, said it would move from London to Amsterdam because it can not legally stay in a non-EU country.

The United Kingdom will leave the European Union on 29 March, and uncertainty about the form of any agreement with Brussels until this date has caused discomfort in the business community, as many British and multinational companies have already announced that they will move elsewhere in the EU.
