1) Objective

The DHI scheme supports Dutch enterprises wishing to invest in or execute a project in emerging markets and in developing countries. With this scheme, the ministry of Foreign Affairs is striving to increase and strengthen the number of Dutch companies operating successfully in emerging markets and developing countries. By doing so, the ministry is making a positive contribution towards sustainable local improvements in developing countries.

The DHI scheme consists of 3 modules: (1) demonstration projects: presentation of a technology, capital goods or service in one of the DHI countries; (2) feasibility studies: assessment of the profitability of a foreign investment in a product or service; (3) investment preparation studies: assessment of the technical and commercial profitability of an investment in a company in one of the DHI countries.

2) Eligibility

Social business and non-profit organisations are eligible to apply.

3) Location

The DHI scheme is open to a large number of countries. It involves emerging markets and the countries of the Dutch Good Growth Fund (DGGF). It has also recently been made possible to submit applications for Haiti, Chad, Togo, Côte d’Ivoire and Lebanon.

4) Budget

The budget available for the second tender round is €2,500,000 for emerging markets and €2,000,000 for developing countries.
