Investment climate in July more favourable than in May
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 July than it was in May. This is mainly due to the fact that the year-on-year export growth was higher than in May’s radar. Furthermore, manufacturers were more positive about their order positions.
