Investment climate more unfavourable 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 in July is more unfavourable than in May. This is mainly because the year-on-year growth in goods exports was smaller in July’s radar and manufacturers were less positive about their order positions.
