Thus, the index crossed above the zero-point threshold that separates pessimism from optimism for the first time since September 2011. Despite the improvement, however, business confidence remains 3.4 points below the level observed in the same period last year. In general, businesses were mostly optimistic about their expected production levels as well as regarding both expected domestic and foreign order books. On the other hand, businesses were mostly pessimistic about their ability to pay current debts.
