The Dutch economy expanded 0.2 percent quarter-on-quarter in July to September period, down from a revised 0.6 percent growth reported in the second quarter and well below market forecasts.
The growth had been driven by modest increases in exports and business investment, the statistical office said in the preliminary estimate.
The Dutch economy is expected to grow by 0.75 percent this year and 1.25 percent in 2015, according to an official government forecast released in June.
Year on year, the GDP advanced 1.1 percent, the same rate recorded in the previous period.
