Investment climate in September less favourable than in July
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 less favourable in September than it was in July. This is mainly due to the fact that the year-on-year export growth was lower than in July’s radar. However, the industrial capacity utilisation rate increased.
