Investment climate less favourable in July

According to the CBS Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands deteriorated in July compared to May, mainly because the growth of exports on a yearly basis was less substantial. The rise in share prices was also somewhat smaller. The investment climate is affected by various factors, like the situation on the global and financial markets.
