Minister Wopke Hoekstra (Finance) will speak to the Dutch Railways (NS) about the additional support the railway company believes is needed to cope with the corona crisis next year. “We will of course discuss this with the Dutch railways,” said the minister.

Hoekstra points out that an “extensive support package” has already been set up for NS and other airlines. “Because it is so important that this infrastructure remains in place, many people naturally depend on it in their work.” Due to the corona measures, the Dutch Railways carry far fewer passengers and a large part of the turnover has been lost.
