Amsterdam Economic Board
The Amsterdam Economic Board is made up of 25 leading directors of academic institutions, company CEOs, alderpersons and mayors from the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Together they are devising the strategy for the metropolis of the future. The Board was established to streamline the working relationships between the private sector, knowledge institutes and government organisations, with a view to further increasing prosperity and well-being in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA). The Board addresses complex urban issues through innovation and collaboration between the private sector, knowledge institutes and government organisations on the metropolitan scale. The Board focuses on the most urgent challenges and on the fields where parties in the AMA have the expertise, knowledge and manpower to truly make a difference, and that furthermore offer economic growth potential. For every challenge, we have set a target on the horizon, indicating where we want the AMA to be in 2025, when Amsterdam celebrates its 750-year anniversary.
