Investment climate less unfavourable in October
Every month, CBS publishes updates on the investment climate in the CBS Investment Radar. Relevant conditions for the investment climate include, for example, the situation on the sales and financial markets. Although radar indicators show a strong correlation with fixed investment, improved conditions 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 October is less unfavourable than it was in August. This is mainly because the year-on-year contraction in goods exports turned into growth and the year-on-year growth in share prices was more substantial. However, manufacturers were less positive about their order positions.
