AMSTERDAM Dec 8 The Dutch economy will grow at
around 2 percent this year and next year, International Monetary
Fund experts said on Thursday.
IMF Netherlands Mission Chief Thomas Dorsey said at a news
conference after a visit that external risks to the
trade-dependent Dutch economy were balanced by strong domestic
demand that may not be fully accounted for by most models.
The Dutch government's forecasting office CPB's most recent
projections include GDP growth of 1.7 percent 2016 and 2017.
