Healthy public finances.

  • The economy is one of VVD’s key priorities. The city of The Hague is in excellent financial shape, thanks to VVD. At the same time, VVD lowered local taxes. A small and efficient municipal administration with low local taxes is what keeps our city attractive for residents and businesses. The Hague municipal taxes, like the property tax (OZB), are the second lowest in the Netherlands. This is the result of many years of our consistent low-tax policies.
