Kopafbeelding onderzoek CPB

International economics

Because the Dutch economy is an open economy, CPB analyses worldwide economic developments and the effects these developments have on the Dutch economy.

Most attention is given to the effects of globalisation on the Netherlands, to international economic growth and the effects of European policy.
