Investment climate more unfavourable in October
Every month, CBS publishes updates on the investment climate in the CBS Investment Radar.

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.
