De Nederlandse economie groeit gestaag door (Dutch)

De Nederlandse economie groeide in het derde kwartaal van 2016 met 0,7 procent ten opzichte van het tweede kwartaal, dit is beduidend sterker dan in de meeste eurozone lidstaten. Ondanks de internationale onzekerheden neemt het exportvolume verder toe. De werkgelegenheid is opnieuw sterk toegenomen.
