Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2013 -- Tourist volumes in the Netherlands increased during the review period due to the country's improved travel infrastructure and the availability of cheaper travel options.

- As a result of the European debt crisis, the Dutch economy recorded slow growth in 2012. However, the economic outlook for 2013 suggests recovery with an expected GDP growth of 1.3% and 2.5% by 2014. The travel and tourism sector in the Netherlands is therefore expected to record moderate but consistent growth over the next five years.
- King's Day (formerly Queens Day) is the biggest national event in Holland, celebrated annually on April 27th. Dutch citizens usually wear orange and music shows, fairs, flea markets and parties are organized throughout the country.
