  • The Netherlands

The Netherlands is a member of the European Union and is subject to European Union trade regulatory requirements and is Australia’s second largest export market within the EU after the United Kingdom.

Significant Australian exports to the Netherlands in 2014-15 included coal, other ores and concentrates, medical instruments and oil seeds and oleaginous fruits.

The Netherlands is an attractive destination for foreign investment, given its open economy, outward focus, sound public sector, good social services, modern and effective infrastructure and a dynamic private sector.

South Australian exports to the Netherlands increased by 3.7 per cent in the 12 months to 30 June 2015.
