The Venlo region is a regional platform in which the municipalities of Venlo, Horst aan de Maas, Venray, Peel en Maas, Beesel, Gennep, Mook en Middelaar and Bergen cooperate to reach common goals. Together we have formed a shared agenda of fourteen themes of which four have a international priority and are represented by our public affairs workgroup. These themes are Agrifood, Logistics, The Circular Econmy and the crossborder labourmarket.
The ambition of the Venlo Region is to join Europe's leading smart and sustainable Agrifood regions, under the name of Greenport Venlo. Research performed by Eurostat has shown that our region is currently placed just outside the top ten. In our region not only many agraric products are produced, but there is also a strong agrotechnological and (agro)logistical presence. Having the complete chain of production in our own region, gives us the ideal opportunity to market our agrarical knowhow.
