Prime Minister Mark Rutte warned the Dutch agriculture and horticulture sector to prepare for a so-called hard Brexit - the United Kingdom leaving the European Union without signing a trade agreement. After months of talks between the EU and the UK, the parties are not yet close to an agreement, NU.nl reports.

"Keep the option in mind that it won't succeed", Rutte said. The British government plans to leave the EU on April 1st, 2019.

Travelers passing through Schiphol on Monday morning can expect long lines at the customs checks due to customs personnel performing a protest action for a better collective bargaining agreement. All passengers landing at the airport between 07:00 a.m. and 11:00 will have their baggage checked, Het Parool reports. Normally most passengers are allowed to just go through.
