Conditions for exports in January more unfavourable than in November
Every month, CBS also publishes updates on the circumstances for exports in the Exports Radar. Conditions are strongly affected by recent developments on the main export markets for Dutch products and by the competitive position of the Netherlands. Although the Radar indicators show a strong correlation with export activity, improved circumstances are not necessarily translated into increased export growth.
According to the CBS Exports Radar, circumstances for exports in January are slightly more unfavourable than in November. This is mainly because the opinions of manufacturers in the Netherlands and the eurozone about their foreign orders were more negative. However, the year-on-year decline in the German manufacturing output was less substantial.
