Nevertheless, the Netherlands is the world's second-largest exporter of food and agricultural products, after the United States.

Apart from agriculture-related industries, The Netherlands is well known for microelectronics, electronic machinery and equipment, metal and engineering products. Thanks to the good infrastructure companies like Google and Microsoft chose The Netherlands for their European Headquarters.  

The average wage in The Netherlands can vary depending on the profession. The average household disposable income is €25.896,- which is much higher than the European average of €16,821,-.
