AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch government said on Saturday it was in talks with 250 companies about moving operations to the Netherlands from Britain ahead of Britain's exit from the European Union, scheduled for March 29.
It said most were British, but some were American or Asian firms reconsidering their European branch structures.
"These include companies in the financial sector, media and advertising, life sciences & health and logistics," it said.
Companies that have moved some operations to the Netherlands or signalled an intention to do so also include Chicago's Cboe Global Markets, the London Stock Exchange Group, Tradeweb, Panasonic and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group.
The European Medicines Agency, which is already operating from a temporary space in Amsterdam, is moving 900 staff to the Netherlands from London by the end of this year.
