AMSTERDAM, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Economic growth in the Netherlands will slow more than anticipated next year, as international trade weakens and environmental rules bite, government policy adviser CPB said on Wednesday.
Growth in the euro zone’s fifth largest economy is set to cool sharply from 2.6% to 1.7% this year and to 1.3% in 2020, the CPB said.
In September, it had forecast growth of 1.8% and 1.5% for 2019 and the year after. (Reporting by Bart Meijer Editing by Shri Navaratnam)
