The Netherlands: Dutch economy holding firm

We expect Dutch GDP volume to grow again this year and next. Business investment will rise thanks to higher exports and improving economic prospects. Only in 2015 will we see a small rise in private consumption, coupled with a modest fall in unemployment.
