Investment climate less unfavourable 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 in April is less unfavourable than in February. This is mainly because consumer confidence was less negative and the year-on-year growth in share prices was more substantial. In addition, the year-on-year growth in goods exports was higher.
