Flourishing economy; tighter labour market
The Dutch economy is flourishing. The Netherlands is a frontrunner in Europe, with growth figures of 3.3% (this year) and 2.5% (2018). Government finances are healthy. For both years, there is a budget surplus, and the government debt is below the maximum budget deficit set by the EU. In addition, the labour market is improving, which means it is tightening.
