Apr 24, 2018 9:46:29 AM. By: Ingelou Stol

The Eindhoven region showed by far the strongest economic growth in the Netherlands in 2017, according to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics. The Dutch economy grew, and that effect was felt in almost all regions. 

Eindhoven and the surrounding area owes its growth to industry and business services. Industrial race horses such as chip machine manufacturer ASML and car and bus manufacturer VDL are driving high growth in the east of North Brabant. In the northern part of this area the growth last year was 6.46%, in the southern part at 4.90%. This means that the entire East North Brabant region has by far the strongest growth in the Netherlands.

That is the highest percentage in years. Except in the east of North Brabant, growth rates above 4 are also recorded in the western part of the province of Utrecht, in the suburbs of Amsterdam, in the Haarlemmermeer (Schiphol) and in Almere.
