Investment climate less unfavourable in November
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 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 unfavourable in November than it was in September. This is mainly due to a higher industrial capacity utilisation rate and to the fact that manufacturers are less negative about their order positions.
