Investment climate in June more favourable than in April
Every month, CBS publishes updates on the investment climate in the CBS Investment Radar. Relevant circumstances for the investment climate include, for example, the situation on the sales markets and the financial markets. Although the radar indicators show a strong correlation with the investments in fixed assets, improved circumstances do not necessarily translate into an increased growth rate or less investment decline.
According to the CBS Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands is more favourable in June than it was in April. This is mainly due to the fact that the year-on-year export growth was higher. Furthermore, manufacturers were more positive about their order positions and consumer confidence was less negative.
