Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises in the Netherlands: an Overview of the Statistics and the Literature (in Dutch)
AbstractDutch media often pay a lot of attention to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). They are considered to be the engine of the Dutch job industry and therefore deserve our attention. In this study we highlight the role the Dutch SMEs play in the Dutch economy. This study's first objective is to get an overall picture of the importance of Dutch SMEs from a macro-economic perspective. The second objective is to shed light on any possible bottlenecks for the Dutch SME. In particular, we pay attention to topics as employment, wages, economic growth, corporate finance and internationalisation.
