Welcome to World Trade Center Leeuwarden – center for export & import
Our main focus is support entrepreneurs in their search for reliable businesspartners worldwide.
World Trade Center Leeuwarden – center for export & import is a non-for-profit member organization. As one of the 330 branches of the World Trade Centers Association we are the point of access for commercial North Netherlands to a global network of as many as 750,000 organizations and businesses. We draw the attention of the rest of the world to our region with the aim to boost the regional economy. The ultimate goal of the global WTC network is to support each other’s members.
We do so by means of:
- supporting companies that do business or want to do business in the Netherlands or abroad including active use of our Matchmaking Tool.
- offering coaching to businesses new in international trade, the so-called ‘SIB coaching’
- international promotion of promising and strong sectors from our region;
- the WTC Business Club, an excellent platform for business encounters, informative meetings and company visits;
- the WTC Business Academy;
The activities have a Business-to-Business orientation.
Since September 2013 we are a fully certified member of the WTC Assocation.
We work closely together with the Chamber of Commerce, the northern export clubs, other business clubs and employers’ associations in North Netherlands, various universities and colleges for higher education, and of course other WTC branches in the Netherlands and throughout the world.
