Industrial activity in the Netherlands predominantly consists of food processing, chemicals, petroleum refining as well as electronic machinery. It has a dynamic agricultural sector and is well known for its plants and cut flowers. The port of Rotterdam is the busiest in Europe, serving a vast hinterland which stretches into Germany and central Europe. As the temporary growth spurt in the first half of 2010 fades, the economy is becoming more reliant on the recovery in world trade. The new government is assumed to pursue the spending cuts in the 2011 budget and the announced medium-term consolidation plans aimed at further savings of 3% of GDP over the following four years. Doing so would be a significant step towards assuring the sustainability of public finances. Nevertheless, additional measures are required to control ageing-related costs.
