Dictionary of Dutchness


The rijksbegroting (state budget) sets out how much money each ministry has been allocated for the coming calendar year and the government’s spending priorities. A close cousin to the rijksbegroting is the miljoenennota which is the background story to the figures and outlines the economic and financial situation in the country. The finance minister formally presents the miljoenennota on the third Tuesday in September but most of it has usually been leaked days or even weeks in advance.
