Investment climate less unfavourable in January compared to 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 January than it was in November. This is mainly due to the fact that manufacturers are less negative about their order positions, the year-on-year decline in stock market prices has turned into an upward trend and consumer confidence is less negative than in November.
