Investment climate less 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 less favourable in August than in June. This is mainly because the growth in exports on a yearly basis changed into decline.

The figures in this publication are provisional and can be adjusted.
