Conditions for exports in July more unfavourable
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 July are more unfavourable than in May. This is mainly because the development of the real effective exchange rate was more unfavourable and producer confidence in the euro area and in Germany was more negative. Opinions of Dutch and European manufacturers about their foreign orders also deteriorated.
