The OECD will present a new Economic Survey of the Netherlands on Wednesday 16 June.

A special chapter looks at how deepening the digital transformation in the Netherlands, particularly by encouraging small businesses to adopt new technologies, could boost productivity growth.

OECD Secretary-GeneralMathias Cormann will present the Survey's key messages and take questions at a virtual press conference with Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy Stef Blok and OECD Director of Economic Country Studies Alvaro Pereira starting at 11:00 CEST on Wednesday 16 June.
