Investment climate slightly more favourable
Every month, CBS publishes updates on the investment climate in the CBS Investment Radar. Relevant circumstances for the investment climate include the situation on the sales and financial markets. Although the Radar indicators show a strong correlation with investments in fixed assets, improved circumstances are not necessarily translated into increased growth in investments.
According to the CBS Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands is slightly more favourable in July than in May. This is mainly because the growth in exports on a yearly basis was more substantial. The year-on-year development of Dutch share prices was also more positive.
