Investment climate less unfavourable in December
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 December than it was in October. This is mainly due to the fact that the year-on-year export contraction was reversed into year-on-year growth. Also the industrial capacity utilisation rate was higher and manufacturers were less negative about their order positions.
