The Dutch are well known for the way they dealt with living in a country that is below sea level. And of course the Dutch are well known for their logistics, their financial skills, their painters and Dutch Design. Dutch people are also known to be direct, open-minded, accurate, consensus-seekers (the famous `polder model´), etc. But did you know the Netherlands is the second largest exporting country of agricultural products? Did you also know that the Dutch language is number 38 on the list of 6800 spoken languages in the world? Moreover the Netherlands is 16th in the list of world economies based on Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and even takes 7th place in GDP per capita in nominal values. A small country, with a very high population density: innovation is one of the key factors in becoming so successful!
