Special Dutch version
The Dutch economy will not grow in 2014. Unemployment will rise further, and the slight boost provided by the global growth spurt will not be vigorous enough for the country to overcome its domestic woes. US economic performance and the modest eurozone recovery account for more than half the global growth spurt.
The Dutch economy still finds itself in recession. In the first quarter, GDP volume contracted by 0.1% on a quarterly basis. Sentiment indicators do not yet point at a speedy recovery.
