VNG International The Hague

VNG International is the International Agency of the Association of Netherlands Municipalities (VNG). VNG International The Hague is a cooperative with VNG, as representative of all Dutch municipalities, being the only member.

Some 50 highly motivated professionals work for VNG International. Except for support staff all are project managers. Most have a background in development studies or administrative sciences. VNG International’s office is at the first floor of VNG headquarters. This is a monumental building with modern, light office space. It was renovated in 2009 and re-opened by queen Beatrix.

VNG International wants to be close to its clients and beneficiaries. This is why VNG International has established daughter companies in South Africa, the Czech Republic and Tunisia. VNG International aims to do this in cooperation with the national association of municipalities, in order to create synergies with their work and to prevent the creation of parallel structures. VNG International also operates field offices related to projects and programmes in various countries. VNG International wants to be close to its clients and beneficiaries.
