Report: creation of "gas hub" good for Dutch economy

The strategy of the Dutch government to strengthen the position of the Netherlands in the European gas market - to become "the gas roundabout" of North-West Europe - has a positive overall impact on the Dutch economy.

That is the conclusion of a research report of the Brattle Group made for the Dutch government. According to the report, the strategy requires investments of some 7.7 billion euros in the next ten years. These will lead to additional economic activities with a value of over 21 billion euros. Some 13,000 additional new jobs will be created if the investments are made.
