Investing in your future

The City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen (Stadsregio Arnhem Nijmegen) is one of the five urban networks in the east of the Netherlands that are the driving force behind the regional economy. The region intends to invest in further economic development in the coming years. Due to the economic downturn, not only has this become a major issue but also a major challenge. Since the days of the economy being predominantly local in character are long gone, a regional approach may seem to be the most obvious. Businesses and organizations in the City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen are gradually discovering the opportunities offered by the international market for selling their products or services and/or taking on new staff. As a result of globalization, the City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen is getting more and more an international orientation. This also means, however, that on a European level the City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen will face more and more competition with other (European) regions. Given the economic situation, it will be essential to make the most of all opportunities available to companies and institutions in the City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen, both nationally and internationally.

The City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen has a so-called ‘broad economy’, which means that it has many companies operating in a wide range of fields (including transport & logistics and business-related services). The city region aims to further strengthen this broad economic activity as well as to take maximum advantage of the growing potential of the companies. In order to achieve this, the city region intends to encourage the development of the following promising business clusters:

  • Health
  • Fashion and design
  • Energy and environmental technology
  • Semiconductors
  • Logistics
  • Tourism

These promising business clusters, laid down in the economic agenda of the City Region of Arnhem Nijmegen, are getting extra emphasis at the web portal.
