IMF discusses Dutch economy

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) will discuss the Dutch economy on Monday.

Economists of the Fund will present the results of their annual country examination and provide advice on economic policies in The Hague.

The IMF looks in this case to fiscal policy, the situation on the housing market and stability of the financial sector.

In their previous visit to the Netherlands in November 2009, they advised the government to phase out the mortgage interest deduction and increase the retirement age.

The Netherlands was also given a compliment for spending on development aid, which was above the international agreements.

The fund also will provide forecasts for economic growth in the Netherlands and the development of unemployment.
