Dutch (greenhouse) horticulture leads the world for professionalism, quality and innovation and is therefore part of the national Topsectorenbeleid (policy on leading sectors).
Horticulture is critical to the Dutch economy and even greater strengthening of this sector is a main objective of the Topsecorenbeleid. That goes with a good and contemporary education and knowledge structure of international allure. The implementation of the Topsectorenbeleid is governed by the Human Capital Agenda.
An important part of Dutch (greenhouse) horticulture is concentrated in the regions of Westland, Oostland and Barendrecht. Companies that together form the Greenport Horti Campus operate in the chain of breeding, supply, cultivation, trade, logistics, business services and engineering.
In order to ensure the long-term economic position of Greenport and to pick up new (national and international) opportunities, an action plan has been drawn up: Business Plan Greenport Horti Campus 2012-2015, also the Human Capital Agenda for Westland, Oostland and Barendrecht.
