"Even from Silicon Valley they come to Groningen", headlines the Financieele Dagblad last weekend. That things are going well with the Groningen economy has not gone unnoticed, even in Silicon Valley. It is happening in Groningen: the rapidly improving labor market ensures that students continue to stick and that employees from abroad also come to Groningen. "I'm so much happier here than in San Francisco." Hella Hueck's article states that graduates from the University of Groningen or Hanze University previously went to the Randstad for a well-paid job. But the tide is turning: students - also foreign - will stick to Groningen, because there is plenty of work. She also quotes Statistics Netherlands, which calculated that there was an employment growth of 3.1 percent in Groningen.
