The historical sea connection between Portugal and the Netherlands was only the beginning of a relationship between our two countries. Currently, there is much more than that.
To deepen the associations and economic development, there has been an increasing offer of jobs for Dutch people in Portugal.

At first glance, there are many more similarities between Portugal and the Netherlands than might be seen. These go far beyond the fact that both countries are good at football. Even though, both have been European football champions—the Netherlands in 1988 and the Portuguese team, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, in 2016.
The defence of human rights, individual freedoms, pacifism, international justice, and the environment are other fields in which Portugal and the Netherlands walk hand in hand.
The good economic period Portugal is experiencing brings legitimate hope for improving the situation for the 11 million Portuguese who live in the westernmost tip of Europe, so popular amongst tourists and immigrants.
