Scenarios and forecasts

Making projections of the development of both the Dutch economy and the world economy is one of CPB's core activities.

CPB publishes short, medium and long term projections. Short term projections (or forecasts) are updated every 3 months. Long term projections always present different scenarios of the future.

Forecast Central Economic Plan 2018

The Dutch economy is gathering steam. The economic boom is the result of a favourable international economy, low interest rates, expansive budgetary policy and a persistently strong housing market. These last two factors distinguish the Netherlands from other countries. Positive domestic dynamics between increasing employment, higher disposable income levels, higher consumption and more investments will lead to a 3.2% economic growth in 2018 and 2.7% in 2019. Over the 2017–2019 period, the Dutch economy is projected to outperform that of the eurozone by 0.6 percentage points, in each of those years.
