Denmark Business Confidence May 2016


Denmark: Business confidence falls in May

May 30, 2016

The business confidence indicator developed by Statistics Denmark (DST) tallied minus 8 points in May, which was lower than the previous month’s minus 6 points and marked the lowest result in six months. The indicator has been under the 0-point threshold, which indicates that pessimists outnumber optimists, since May 2014.

According to DST, May’s reading came mainly on the back of a decrease in order backlogs, which more than offset an increase in production expectations.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect gross fixed investment growth to reach 1.7% in 2016, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. For 2017, panelists forecast an expansion of 2.6%.
