The Role of Independent Fiscal Institutions in Fiscal Frameworks: the Dutch Case

Friday, February 22, 9.00 to 10.30 am

Mr. Sander van Veldhuizen, Program Manager Public Finance, CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis

Starting from a historical perspective, Mr. Sander van Veldhuizen will explain how the Dutch budgetary framework nowadays works and he will investigate the central role of the CPB in this process. The medium term budgetary framework is driven by the regular election cycle, beginning with the Dutch tradition of assessing the election manifestos and ending with an assessment of the coalition agreement. This tradition has internationally sparked both wonder and marvel. In the second part of the talk, the role of natural resources in the Dutch fiscal framework, and the associated issues like the Dutch disease will be discussed.

The event will take place at the Joint Vienna Institute, room 700A, 7th floor, Mariahilfer Strasse 97, 1060 Vienna. We hope that you will be able to join us, and look forward to your participation. To participate, please register by February 20, 2019 to .
