The Dutch economy grew 2.4 percent year-on-year in the third quarter and unemployment fell sharply in welcome news for Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s government, which trails the far-right Freedom Party four months before a parliamentary election.

Unemployment declined to 5.9 percent from 6.3 percent in the second quarter, the largest quarter-on-quarter decline in a decade, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) said.

The economy grew 0.7 percent from the previous quarter. That compares with a revised 0.7 percent growth in the second quarter of 2016, and 2.3 percent year on year. The agency described growth as “steady”, with 10 consecutive quarters of growth.

The economy is benefiting from a strong recovery in housing prices, which is boosting consumer confidence and spending, as well as a continuing large trade surplus.

“Apart from a dip in February and March of this year, the mood among consumers has been positive for almost two years,” CBS chief economist Peter Hein van Mulligen said.

He said consumer confidence, especially willingness to make major purchases, rose in October to its highest level since 2007. The housing boom was contributing to both declining unemployment and strong growth in investment, he said.

Campaigning for the March elections is due to begin shortly after the winter holidays, with most polls currently showing Rutte’s conservative VVD Party trailing the far-right Freedom party of populist lawmaker Geert Wilders.

MADRID, Aug 25 – Spain’s economy grew strongly in the second quarter as consumer spending stayed robust and demand for exports rose, though there were signs that a vibrant investment climate may be starting to cool after months of political uncertainty.

An economic recovery has retained momentum through eight months without a functioning government, as the country has continued to notch up one of the fastest growth rates in the euro zone this year.

Quarter on quarter GDP growth reached 0.8 percent, keeping pace with the first quarter and up a tenth of a percentage point from a preliminary estimate, Thursday’s final data from national statistics agency INE showed.

Consumer spending grew 3.6 percent year on year as people who kept their jobs through a recession that ended in 2013 took advantage of better times to buy big-ticket goods like washing machines.

Exports of services also performed well, INE said, even outside the tourism sector which has been boosted by record numbers of visitors this summer.

Spain’s acting economy minister, Luis de Guindos, said he expected the economy would eventually be impacted by the lack of a government.

However “from what we can tell there is no slowdown in the third quarter, it will be similar to the second and first,” he told reporters.

After two inconclusive national elections in December and June, the spectre of a third looms.

Politicians last week inched closer to ending the impasse when the People’s Party of acting Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy agreed terms to negotiate a pact with a smaller rival, Ciudadanos.

If the agreement is sealed, Ciudadanos will back Rajoy in a parliamentary confidence vote on Aug. 31 on forming a government. But even then Rajoy would still be short of the majority he needs, raising the possibility of third ballot in December unless others also agree to back him or abstain.

CHALLENGING AUTUMN

While fallout for gross domestic product so far has been slight, the political deadlock has triggered concerns that companies might delay expansion plans.

A slowdown in manufacturers’ investment in equipment and machinery extended into the second quarter, the INE data showed, when it grew at 7.8 percent year-on-year against 9.3 percent in the previous three months and almost 11 percent in the last quarter of 2015.

Analysts from Barclays said they expected investment growth to continue to decelerate, hit by declining business confidence. However, they raised their 2016 growth forecast by 0.3 percentage points to 3.1 percent, citing strong exports.

In a sign of the possible impact on government investment, spending on public works contracts slumped by a fifth in the first quarter, separate data showed on Tuesday, as decisions on infrastructure projects like roads, ports and trains were deferred.

On an annual basis the economy grew by 3.2 percent in the second quarter, INE said – below the 3.4 percent growth rate of the first but in line with a preliminary estimate.

The acting government expects the economy to expand 2.9 percent this year – one of the fastest rates in the euro zone – though scrutiny is growing over whether that will be enough to reach deficit targets without spending cuts.

Gross debt rose to a record high 1.1 trillion euros ($1.24 trillion) in June, Bank of Spain data showed on Wednesday, which the economy ministry said was equivalent to 100.9 percent of national output – well above 2016 goals.

Further delays to forming a government would bring Spain up against the EU’s deadline of mid-October to submit a 2017 budget. Missing that would damage investor confidence and raise the possibility of sanctions.

“Spain is heading towards a challenging autumn as a late government formation would mean delays to the budget, the expenditure ceiling and the new path of deficit target approval,” the Barclays analysts said in a note.

Foreign Direct Investment or FDI is a kind of international investment made with the intention of acquiring an ever-lasting financial interest in an economy. If done strategically then this kind of direct investment can really bring huge benefits to investors. The importance of liberalization has made many countries open up their economies. Considering this in mind, one continent which has really banked on this is Europe and the formation of European Union only corroborates this fact. The integration of 27 countries in Europe has really made it one of the most preferred destinations in the world for investment.

The Main Advantages EU Provides to Investors:

The European Union views FDI not as a mere sense of investment but also a way of promoting economic and social growth and development. The investment policy of the European Union is tilted more towards providing investors with a kind of stability and legal certainty coupled with an environment conducive to carry out business and in accordance with the International rules. It has abolished all the trade barriers that were acting as a hindrance for free trade. Furthermore, the European Union has also adopted a common currency which has served as a major fillip towards increasing trade in the European Union.

Just as it has good legal policies which encourage foreign investment, in the same way the European Union is also gifted with large natural resources. It has huge reserves of oil and natural gas and coal. Thus, it has a good blending of resources that really work in the advantage of doing business than any other part in the world.

The other major thing that makes the European Union unique from other destinations is the diverse booming industries in various countries within the EU. There is no such sector in the EU where you can’t invest. Every industrial sector in EU has room for expansion and is in the need of foreign investment.

The services sector forms the core of the European Union as it accounts for a major chunk of the entire Economy of the EU. Some of the key sectors worth investing in the European Union are Aerospace and Defence, Automotive, Biotechnology, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Nanotechnology, Nuclear, Logistics, Engineering, Real Estate and many others.

As the European Union is a host of comprehensive range of countries, it has really become one of the best destinations for investing in the Real Estate sector. The diverse property opportunities across the Union and the well established rental markets have already attracted loads of foreign investors. Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland, and Romania are the hottest destinations for investing in Real Estate.

Some Facts About the European Union:

According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the EU is the largest economy in the world and has a total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $16,447.26 billion. The European Union has always been known for its investor-friendly policies since the early 80s. In the year 1992, the European Union alone accounted for more than 50% of the foreign investment worldwide. Such is the intensity of foreign investment in EU that the ratio of foreign investment to domestic investment also saw an increasing trend in the past two decades. The FDI inward inflows of the European Union accounted for a whooping 62.2 billion Euro in the year 2004 whereas the outward FDI flows of the EU accounted for a mammoth 114.9 Euro in the same year.

As far as trade is concerned, the various economic policies of the EU really make it one of the best trading destinations in the world. This is evident from the fact that the European Union is the largest exporter as well as largest importer in the entire world. The EU exports large amounts of Machinery followed by Energy, Chemicals and Transport Equipment and Textiles Clothing. Other commodities that are exported by the EU include dairy products, meat, iron and steel, wood pulp, paper products, alcoholic beverages, pharmaceuticals, motor vehicles, aircraft, plastics and paper products. Machineries also account for large number of imports of the EU followed by Transport equipment and chemicals, plastics, crude oil, textiles, metals, clothing, vehicles and aircraft.

Trends Prevailing in the European Union:

Despite the global financial meltdown, European Union is showing a speedy recovery and EU’s economy has started showing an upward trend. According to the commissioner of the European Union, the GDP of the European Union is expected to grow twice as predicted in the year 2011. The GDP of the EU is expected to grow by a 1.8 percent than the predicted 1 percent with Germany having the largest jump of 3.4 percent.

Measures Taken by the Government:

The European Union Commission has come up with a proposal with a strategy known as the Europe-2020 Strategy to help the EU recover to economic growth at a faster rate. For this, the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs in its report has analysed the bottlenecks that may come against this growth and also highlighted the need to address the issues hindering the economic growth of the Commission. The monetary policy of the EU is no longer restrictive and businesses can once again gain free access to credit and other business activities.

To conclude, the European Union is really one of the most important destinations which should not be overlooked by investors who want to expand their reach across the world. Its exuberant natural resources and ever-increasing sectors really make it one of the most preferred destinations for investment in the world today.
