Investment climate more unfavourable in June than in April
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 more unfavourable in June than it was in April. This is mainly due to the fact that the industrial capacity utilisation rate was lower. In addition, manufacturers were more negative about their order position, year-on-year export decline was larger and consumer confidence deteriorated.
