About Prinsjesdag

The third Tuesday in September is traditionally known as Prinsjesdag in the Netherlands. On Prinsjesdag, or Budget Day as it is called abroad, King Willem-Alexander gives the Speech from the Throne. The Speech from the Throne sums up the state of the nation, and outlines the government plans for the coming year. After the Speech, the Minister of Finance presents the chair of the House of Representatives with the National Budget and the Budget Memorandum. These documents describe how government is going to execute its plans, and how much budget is allotted to each plan.
