Her Majesty Queen Maxima of the Netherlands Holds a Meeting on How to Solve the Problem of Debt.

On Tuesday, May 31, 2022, Her Majesty Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, as Honorary Chairwomen of the SchuldenlabNL Foundation, met with deputies from the twelve provinces to discuss “…what they can do for a debt-free Netherlands.”

According to RVD, the twelve provinces within the Netherlands do not have a:

“…direct task in debt counseling, which lies mainly with municipalities. However, they do contribute to promoting quality of life in the province and the social agenda. Queen Maxima and the chairman of SchuldenlabNL, Mr. Gerrit Zalm, spoke with the deputies about how they can motivate the municipalities in their province to adopt the debt relief methods of SchuldenlabNL. 

The foundation has assessed eight methods as proven and successful ways to help people with problematic debts. During the meeting, it was examined which methods are used in the various municipalities and what the province can do to scale up this.

Stichting SchuldenlabNL was established in 2018 as a partnership between public and private parties. Its aim is to make the Netherlands debt-free.”
