Netherlands: Business confidence eases but remains in positive territory in May

May 30, 2022

Business confidence fell to 9.9 in May from April's 10.8. Consequently, the index remained entrenched above the 0-threshold, indicating sustained optimism among businesses.

The downtick was driven by less upbeat views regarding output expectations and the current stock of finished goods.

Consensus Forecast panelists see fixed investment expanding 2.1% in 2022, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s estimate, and 2.5% in 2023.
