In both the EU reports on the relocation and in my interviews (IOM, Dublin in Rome), the Netherlands is considered one of the best partners in the management of the relocation process, along with Sweden. Nevertheless, on 12 March 2018, at the end of the relocation, only 969 people were relocated from Italy to the Netherlands out of the 2150 originally planned; i.e. 47% of the total projected number in 2015 (graph).
