Investment climate more favourable

According to April’s Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands is more favourable than in March. Since the publication of March’s Investment Radar, new data have become available for five indicators. Four indicators improved and one 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 was considerably more substantial than one month previously. Consumer confidence improved again. In addition, the year-on-year rise of Dutch share prices was larger than in the previous month. Lastly, the mood among Dutch manufacturers about their order positions somewhat improved. The interbank interest rate remained roughly the same.
