The proportion of the Dutch and the European Union economy in the global economy has halved in the last 35 years, reports Statistics Netherlands. In 1980, the Dutch share was 1.3%, last year it was 0.7% of the global economy. The EU fell from 30% in 1985 to 17% last year. The decrease is mainly due to the growing Asian economies. In absolute terms, the European economy has grown significantly in the last 35 years.

Last Friday, the Dutch Minister of Finance, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, announced to sell the insurer ASR in Q1 2016. ASR was bought by the Dutch State in 2008 for EUR 3.6 billion.

Earlier this year, analysts estimated the value between the EUR 3 billion and EUR 5 billion, but at that moment the market sentiment was more positive. As with ABN Amro, the IPO will be completed in tranches.
