Denmark Business Confidence March 2016


Denmark: Business confidence increases in March

March 30, 2016

The business confidence indicator developed by Statistics Denmark (DST) increased to minus 5 points in March, which was up from the minus 7 points seen in February. Despite the increase, the indicator remains under the 0-point threshold, which indicates that pessimists outnumber optimists. The indicator has been in negative territory since May 2014.

According to DST, March’s reading came mainly on the back of a decrease in completed inventories and in the confidence indicator for production.

FocusEconomics Consensus Forecast panelists expect gross fixed investment growth to reach 1.3% in 2016, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast. For 2017, panelists forecast an expansion of 3.1%.
