Although the Dutch economy will continue its recovery in 2011 and 2012, it will be at a significantly slower pace than in 2010. The country is faced with weakening world trade growth since second half of 2011, and the government is poised to step up its austerity programme in 2012.

Country Report

Spain (Country Update)

The Spanish government is seriously tackling its financial and economic issues. But the country is currently in a perfect storm of recession, missed budget deficit targets, rising government debt and rising opposition to government policies.

Country Report

Slovenia (Country Update)

Slovenia is currently experiencing a double-dip recession as a result of fiscal consolidation and banking sector problems. Implementation of the necessary reform plans is still at risk, as pressure from the public and trade unions remains high.

Country Report

Ireland (Country Update)

Economic stabilisation and restructuring and recapitalisation of the banking sector have pushed government bond yields for Ireland below those of Italy. But uncertainty remains high, with the economic recovery still far from complete.

Country Report

Italy (Country Update)

Italy is taking significant steps to reduce the budget deficit and reform the economy. But the former is being undermined by the return of recession while on the reform front much still needs to be done.

Country Report

Mexico (Country Update)

After years of congressional gridlock, Mexico's newly-elected president Enrique Pe?a Nieto has presented a comprehensive structural reform package. While the reforms look promising, he will likely face protracted negotiations with the opposition.

Country Report

Portugal (Country Update)

Although Portugal has been very successful in abiding by the conditions of the IMF/EC/ECB troika and therefore has received official financial assistance without delay, the economic and financial situation remains very precarious and uncertain.

Country Report

Latvia (Country Report)

Following its very deep recession in 2008/10, Latvia currently belongs to the fastest-growing EU member states. Thanks to its successful austerity strategy and low inflation, the country could join the euro area in 2014.

Visie op 2013: Wennen aan lagere groei (Dutch)

De Nederlandse economie zal in 2013 nauwelijks groeien (+¦%). Wereldwijd moet de economische groei grotendeels uit de opkomende markten komen. Onder invloed van vooral de eurocrisis zal het mondiale groeiherstel in 2013 beperkt blijven tot 3?%.

Funding for growth. Now and in the future

How do businesses fund their growth in the coming years? We conclude that large companies fund themselves to a significant extent with equity, whereas small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) depend mainly on bank lending for their funding.
