In this Dataset international comparisons are made of macroeconomic conditions on the basis of a number of elementary performance indicators: - Inflation; - Long-term interest rate; - Net borrowing/lending of consolidated general government sector; - General government debt; - Unemployment; - Imports and exports, related to Gross Domestic Product (GDP); - Goods trade with non-EU countries; - Container transport. These indicators give an overall picture of the international competitive position of a country. The macroeconomic circumstances define the basic climate within which companies develop their activities. Good macroeconomic conditions ensure a favorable climate in which enterprises can function well. Note: Comparable definitions are used to compare the figures presented internationally. The definitions sometimes differ from definitions used by Statistics Netherlands. The figures in this table could differ from Dutch figures presented elsewhere on the website of Statistics Netherlands.
