Negatieve rente? De ene rente is de andere niet (Dutch)

Het ECB beleid leidt tot lage en soms negatieve rentes in geldmarkten, op staatsleningen en op sommige bancaire producten. In het bankwezen staat de rentemarge onder druk; spaarrentes kunnen slechts beperkt omlaag, terwijl leenrentes verder dalen.

Belgium: slow economic growth continues

We expect the Belgian economy to grow by around 1¼% in 2015, supported by household consumption and exports. There will be further economic growth (1½%) in 2016, driven by the global economy and investment, but consumption growth will then slow down.
