Dutch term or phrase: duidelijke visie en klare kijk op de toekomst
This is a bit redundant. How would you include both expressions?

The sentence reads,

...bedrijf met een duidelijke visie en een klare kijk op de toekomst.

...company with a clear vision for the future and ????

Thanks!

a clear vision of the future
Explanation:
I've seen this before, and after much musing decided that it was just repetition to satisfy somebody's poetic leanings. I think that you could spend hours trying to find a match, and it would still read strangely to a native English speaker.

concrete vision and a good understanding of the future


Explanation:
I believe there is a slight difference of meaning between the two phrases, and I believe it's meant to complement each other - the concrete vision shows that the company (or whoever) has a good understanding of the future.
