The Netherlands, a strip of fertile and reclaimed land, is strategically positioned in northwest Europe. The country enjoys its state of the art sea, rail and trucking ports and distribution networks on some of Europes most vital waterways - Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt - in the modern cities of Amsterdam, The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht. The Netherlands is known for its dairy, arable and horticulture (fully computerized, greenhouse) farming. It is perhaps most famous for its milk and cheese, vegetables and flowers. Agricultural treasures abound in this densely populated country. Other treasures include art and paintings and Dutch design.
