Abstract

Soon after the Second World War, Germany, France, Italy and Benelux countries Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg sought closer collaboration. Their efforts sixty years ago culminated in the creation of what would become the EU. Over time, their partnership widened to encompass 28 Member States. Concentrating mainly on economic aspects, it brought them considerable economic benefits. The Netherlands turned out to be one of the major beneficiaries, given its large export sector and itsposition as Europe's gateway port.
