Investment climate less favourable

According to June’s Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands is less favourable than in May. Since the publication of May’s Investment Radar, new data have become available for five indicators. Two indicators deteriorated and three hardly changed. Circumstances relevant for investments are, on the one hand, the situation on the commodity markets, and on the other hand, the availability of financial means.

Exports growth on a yearly basis deteriorated compared to one month previously. In addition, the mood among Dutch manufacturers about their order positions declined. The development of the year-on-year Dutch share prices, consumer confidence and the interbank interest rate remained roughly the same.
