Minister Hoekstra not to IMF summit Due to dividend Debate. Minister Wopke Hoekstra (Finance) leaves aside the autumn meeting of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Bali.
He wants to stay in The Hague for consultations about the possible abolition of the dividend tax.
According to reports Hoekstra stated this. At the IMF summit,
the Netherlands is now represented by President Klaas Knot of De Nederlandsche Bank and senior officials of the Ministry of Finance.
The coalition parties will review the abolition of the dividend tax.
“These are discussions where it is useful that Hoekstra is in The Hague”, explains his spokesman.
The minister wants to be available for questions about, for example, the budget rules.
That would be tough given the long air travel and the time difference when travelling to Indonesia.
When a knot is cut through, it is not known. Sources in The Hague demand more clarity next Monday,
after the talks between the coalition party leaders of the coalition parties.
