How we operate

Page

CPB is an organisational part of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy. It is one of the Netherlands’ three national policy assessment agencies. CPB conducts independent economic research. Our independent position is laid down in the official Protocol for the Policy Assessment Agencies (Aanwijzingen voor de Planbureaus). The protocol states that Cabinet Ministers or State Secretaries will not issue instructions regarding the research methods to be used by the policy assessment agencies, nor will they do so regarding the content of the reports published by these agencies.
