The new coaltion agreement

On May 27th of this year the new cabinet in the Netherlands has been installed. The economic and fiscal outlook for the new cabinet is worrisome, with negative economic growth in the past two quarters implying an official recession for the first time since the early eighties.

In the negotiations between the coalition parties much attention was paid to the economic and fiscal effects of the proposals under consideration. CPB assisted in this part of the process by assessing the economic effects of different proposals and of the final coalition agreement.
