There have never been as many unemployed people and employment in the Netherlands as last year. The number of jobs was 10.4 million, while 9.3 million people worked. This is evident from the annual overview of the Dutch economy in 2018 by the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS).
Furthermore, the number of vacancies from & # 39; is the old record from 2008. In the same period, the average unemployment rate (350,000) fell since 2008 at its lowest level.
The Dutch economy grew to 2.7 percent of the built-in domed product (BIP) in the last year. This is largely due to employment opportunities. Growth is very much on consumer intake; they made the biggest contribution. For years, the foreign trade was the engine of our economy.
The CBS also states that confidence in the consumption has been reduced. That reached her highest point in April, when it began to fall and in February there were more pessimists and optimists for the first time. The delay of trust went into the last month.
Consumer economy over the economy and its financial situation often serves the development of the economy, CBS says. But negative consumer confidence does not always mean that the economic situation disappears.
