Netherlands - Unemployment

The Dutch economy expanded at twice the average speed of the Euro area in the third quarter on the back of robust private and public outlays as well as a positive contribution from the external sector. Household consumption has benefited from a tight labor market feeding through to higher wages and, boding well for private consumption ahead, the unemployment rate remained low at the start of the fourth quarter. Furthermore, exports grew robustly in October over the prior month while the merchandise trade surplus widened. Less positively, industrial output growth was flat in October over the prior month and the manufacturing PMI fell into contractionary territory for the first time in six years in November, boding ill for output.
