Moving to the Netherlands: what has changed during the last years

Sunday, February 8, 2015

Although here the crisis impacted less than other European countries ( like the Southern ones), even the Netherlands faced some problems because of the debt crisis that hit the entire Europe. Between the 2011 and 2013, there was a continuous economic dropdown, but as of the 2014 the trend has reversed.

The Netherlands have always had an exportation-based economy, but its economy had to face a weak internal consumption demand. According to the CBS, the Dutch statistic bureau, the unemployement rate has grown from 5,5% to the 8,8% and then dropped to the current level, that is 8.0% ( December 2014).

Even if it is a solid country and also one of the most developed economies in Europe, it is clear how also here the job market has changed in the last years. It is not uncommon to hear that companies have to close and that people have lower income, but since the Netherlands economy is growing again (despite a modest 1,0% growth) this makes it one of the best destinations regarding the job market in Europe.

The Netherlands are still one of the best places to live in terms of quality of life and safety both in Europe and in the world for different reasons that you will discover in the next posts.
