Through international analyses, CPB provides up-to-date, accurate and relevant information about the impact of international factors on the Dutch economy. To this end, it researches the medium-term impact of these factors. International short-term forecasts are contributing to CPB's projections, the latter of which are accompanied by short-term studies on the international factors that have an impact in those projections. The Dutch economy is highly dependent on the free movement of persons, goods, services and capital within the European Union (the Four Freedoms of the single market). In the coming years and in this context, CPB will in any event focus on the position of the Netherlands in international value chains and the related issues around geoeconomics, as well as on European macro-financial issues. It, furthermore, will be working on an outlook study that explores migration issues.
