Conditions for exports less favourable in December
Every month, CBS also publishes updates on the circumstances for exports in the Exports Radar. Conditions are largely determined by developments on the main export markets for Dutch domestic products and in the competitive position of the Netherlands. Although the Radar indicators show a strong correlation with export activity, improved circumstances are not necessarily translated into increased export growth.
According to the CBS Exports Radar, circumstances for exports in December are less favourable than in October. This is mainly because the year-on-year contraction in German manufacturing output was larger and German producer confidence was less positive in December’s radar.
