For years the Netherlands India Chamber of Commerce & Trade (NICCT) has been active in promoting business relations between the Netherlands and India. We believe that the economies of the two countries are mutually complementary in many ways and that there is a significant scope for expansion of trade and business relations between these two countries.

The NICCT came into being in 2003 as a result of the merger between the India Trade Council and the Indo Dutch Chamber of Commerce, both of which had functioned in the Netherlands for many years and had similar objectives & activities. Membership of the NICCT is growing steady. Currently more than 100 Dutch and Indian companies including major banks, insurance companies, IT related companies and multinationals are members of the NICCT.
