Entrepreneurs disappointed with Rutte government
Dutch entrepreneurs are not happy with the government policies and believe that the Prime Minister Mark Rutte cabinet is doing little to address the economic crisis.
A survey of 471 of entrepreneurs by employers' organization VNO-NCW shows that entrepreneurs are unhappy with the high tax burden, low consumer confidence and the excess of rules.
The government scored 4.9 out of 10, a record low score. Rutte was rated 5.4, VNO-NCW said.
According to entrepreneurs, the government is not doing enough to further stimulate the construction and housing and improve the quality of education.
However, they are pleased with the improvements in the field of infrastructure and accessibility and decrease in the number of crimes. They are also happy with foreign policy.
Dutch finance minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem was the most popular with a rating of 6.6.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Frans Timmermans, Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport Edith Schippers and Minister of Infrastructure and the Environment Melanie Schultz van Haegen were rated above 6.
