Both have their own unique profile and a distinctive identity. They complement each other well and their strengths act in synergy. Every day around half a million commuters travel from home to work or to training or study. The region really does function as a single, daily urban system. In other words the region and its 24 local authorities have been working closely together in numerous domains for a long time already: the Metropolitan region is alive and kicking.

 the port-industry complex Mainport Rotterdam The Hague International City of Peace and Justice, the Security Delta network for world class security solutions and the International Court of Justice the Greenport Westland-Oostland is a world player in global horticulture under glass.
