When are recent economic figures expected?

The COVID-19 crisis has a major impact on both individual citizens and businesses in the Netherlands. It is too early to provide an analysis of the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on the Dutch economy. However, it is clear that various sectors will be affected. Over time, the economic consequences will become progressively quantifiable. Here you will find an overview of the relevant upcoming economic news releases.

The economic growth rates over Q1 2020, which are due to be released on 15 May, will provide an initial answer to questions about the economic impact of the coronavirus crisis from a wider perspective. How did the economy develop in the first quarter of this year? What was the contribution of the various industries, of consumption, investments and trade? However, even ahead of 15 May, CBS will be publishing various economic statistics that may afford insight into the impact of the coronavirus crisis.
