On 5 May, the Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace for Holland, Dr Paul Gelderloos, further summarized the good news that is unfolding in the Dutch media.
- The Dutch government has made a definite decision to go ahead with expansion of the industrial area near the international harbour of Rotterdam. After years of procrastination and procedures, the government will allow no further delay.
- There is unprecedented optimism and growth in the transport and steel business in Holland, so much so that the government even expects there will be a shortage of professionals in that area.
- In general, employees report that they are much more positive about their future. Many more people than before are deciding to change jobs, because they see new opportunities and are not afraid to leave their secure work environment behind for greater opportunity.
- Following the recent example of the national government, now local authorities have also decided to dramatically simplify government by cutting down the local government rules and regulations. Holland has been overregulated. The cities want to abolish 40 kinds of licenses. The national government yesterday announced they would like to decrease the 2.1 million licenses given annually to 1.2 million licenses annually, by abolishing certain kinds of licenses and by restructuring in other cases.
- The current annual inflation in The Netherlands is 1.2 per cent, one of the lowest in Europe. It is expected this will decrease further.
- Insurance companies are minimizing bureaucracry, and are making the processing of travel insurance claims available via the internet.
- In April 2006, as compared to April 2005, investments of private citizens in the stock market increased by 100 per cent. Yesterday it was announced that the average number of daily transactions in April on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange was the highest ever.
- The press reported there are fewer assaults in the hotel and catering industry, the lowest in ten years.
- The traditional Dutch car, the Spyker, started a new luxury production line a few years ago. Spyker doubled production this month and today announced that more and more of its customers are requesting custom made, individualized cars, costing up to 1.5 million Euro. Of course, this is too high for the average citizen, but clearly a sign of the booming economy in Holland.
