The Netherlands (NL) is firmly committed to a comprehensive peace agreement between Israel and the PLO. The main objective is the establishment of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security.
The Netherlands is the 20th largest economy in the world. It combines high income per capita with fairly even income distribution and is one of the most open and outward-looking countries in the world.
The Netherlands Representative Office to the Palestinian Authority (NRO) was opened in 1994, soon after the conclusion of the Oslo Agreements, and was originally located in Jericho. In 1996, the NRO moved to Ramallah, where the institutions of the Palestinian Authority are located.
