Why were the dutch so successful in establishing a trading empire in the Indian ocean?
Because the Dutch East India Company had the aid of the Dutch Military in enforcing their demands. They actually had a separate army known as KNIL Koningkleik Nederland's Indies Leger ( Royal Dutch Indies army) to look after their interests. And he who runs the guns runs the show. The Dutch, who had been recently liberated from Spain had a religion which did not restrict personal gain, as well as an abundant population. This set the stage for a powerful and successful overseas empire. After The Portugese-Dutch war the Dutch found small European competition aside from The English East India Company.
