Outside the dotted line: more favourable than average.
Investment climate slightly less favourable than in previous month
According to July’s Investment Radar, the investment climate in the Netherlands was less favourable than in the previous month. New data have become available for five indicators. Three indicators deteriorated, one remained the same and one improved. Circumstances relevant for investments are, on the one hand, the situation on the sales markets, and on the other hand, the availability of financial means. Although the Radar indicators show a strong correlation with investments in fixed assets, improved circumstances are not necessarily translated into a higher growth or a smaller decline of investments.
The year-on-year export growth was smaller than in the previous month. The year-on-year increase in share prices was less substantial than in the previous month. Consumer confidence slightly. However
manufacturers were more positive about their order positions. The interbank interest rate remained the same. There was no new information about the industrial capacity utilization rate.
