Overview Subsidies

Companies in developing countries are often on the lookout for reliable business partners abroad. The Match Making Facility puts those companies in touch with Dutch businesses.

The Private Sector Investment programme, PSI (divided in PSI Regular and PSI Plus) is a subsidy programme of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs/Development Cooperation that supports innovative investment projects in emerging markets. A PSI project is an investment project, implemented by a Dutch (or foreign) company together with a local company, in one of the eligible developing countries. If this investment meets the criteria, it can be eligible for a grant by PSI. This grant consists of a financial contribution to the costs of the investment.
