Netherlands Country Risk Report Q4 2015 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Sep 28 2015

The Netherlands' economic growth will be supported by nascent recoveries in the domestic housing and labour markets. However, crushingly high levels of household indebtedness will prevent households harnessing growing eurozone growth momentum as much as other countries in the bloc.

The coalition government's ability to push through a front-loaded austerity programme and a raft of labour market reforms will contribute to the Netherlands' fiscal accounts remaining among the healthiest in the eurozone.

Key Risks To Outlook

The knock-on effects of gathering eurozone growth momentum could feed through into the Dutch economy more than we currently anticipate, causing growth to surprise to the upside. Nevertheless, we caution that the eurozone's rising tide will struggle to lift the Dutch economy to the same extent as other countries due to the crippling levels of household debt.
