British and Dutch leaders have this morning (October 24) announced a raft of new commercial agreements worth millions between companies in the UK and Netherlands.

The deals, creating or safeguarding around 500 jobs, were confirmed at the UK Netherlands Innovation Showcase held as part of the Dutch state visit this week.

Closer collaboration in the fintech, clean growth and digital sectors is at the heart of the event, echoing the priorities in the Government’s Industrial Strategy.

The UK could have two million ‘green collar’ jobs by 2030, and there are already 1.5 million jobs in the digital sector – a number growing at twice the rate of the rest of the economy, according to government figures.
