The Netherlands is gradually emerging from a recession, but challenges remain to return to sustainable growth. Structural reforms are needed to facilitate banks’ and households’ balance sheet restructuring and to enhance the dynamism of SMEs.
This policy profile on education in The Netherlands is part of the new Education Policy Outlook series, which will present comparative analysis of education policies and reforms across OECD countries. Building on the substantial comparative and sectorial policy knowledge base available within the OECD, the series will result in a biannual publication (first volume due in 2015).
This document sets out when the Netherlands joined the OECD, what its permanent delegation does, and the benefits of OECD membership.
