Netherlands: Business confidence moderates but remains optimistic in December

December 30, 2021

Business confidence fell to 10.2 in December from November's 12.7. However, the index remained entrenched above the 0-threshold, and indicated optimism among businesses.

The downtick from November’s record-high print was driven by less upbeat views on output expectations and stocks of finished goods. Attitudes towards order positions also soured.

Consensus Forecast panelists see fixed investment expanding 3.2% in 2022, which is up 0.3 percentage points from last month’s estimate, and 4.0% in 2023.
