About DECP

Our Mission

The foundation Dutch Employers’ Cooperation Programme (DECP) is a public-private partnership established by Dutch employers and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2005 with the aim of strengthening the position of business member organisations in developing countries. Via DECP, Dutch employer organisations offer professional expertise to business member organisations in developing countries.

Dutch employer organisations and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs took the initiative to set up DECP because they believe that well-functioning business organisations can make a contribution to sustainable economic development in the partner countries.
