Together, their GDP reached 18 trillion yuan, more than national GDP, 17.28 trillion yuan.

Dutch 1st in NATO to quit Afghanistan荷兰部队撤离阿富汗
The Netherlands became the first NATO country to end its combat mission in Afghanistan, drawing the curtain Sunday on a four-year operation that was deeply unpopular at home and even brought down a Dutch government, the AP reported. The departure of the small force of nearly 1,900 Dutch troops is not expected to affect conditions on the ground. But it is politically significant because it comes at a time of rising casualties and growing doubts about the war, even as allied troops are beginning what could be the decisive campaign of the war. Twenty-four Dutch soldiers have died in Afghanistan since the mission began in 2006. The Dutch troops will be replaced by soldiers from the U.S., Australia, Slovakia and Singapore.美联社报道,在驻扎阿富汗四年后,8月1日,荷兰开始撤军,成为第一个撤出阿富汗战争的北约成员国。阿富汗驻军问题在荷兰国内广受质疑,最终导致荷兰联合政府垮台。荷兰驻阿部队仅有不到1900人,其撤出并不会对阿富汗战争产生实质影响,但此事政治意义非同一般,因为当前正值伤亡增加,盟军准备在质疑声中发动一场所谓的决定性战役。自2006年出兵阿富汗至今,共有24名荷兰士兵在阿富汗丧生。荷兰军队的防务将由美国、澳大利亚、斯洛伐克和新加坡的军队来接管。
