Investment climate more unfavourable in September
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 September is more unfavourable than it was in July. This is because manufacturers were less positive about their order positions, the industrial capacity utilisation rate was lower, the year-on-year growth in share prices was less substantial and the year-on-year contraction in goods exports was higher.
