The province of Zuid-Holland operates on behalf of the community of Zuid-Holland. In our society there are social challenges which run parallel to cross-border obstacles and chances. The unit European and International Affairs (EU-IA) represents the province’s interests in Europe and beyond. Our extensive international networks, expertise of lobby and knowledge of European subsidies contribute to reaching common goals. Within the complex European system we form alliances between European and Zuid-Holland partners in order to support them in solving mutual challenges.
