Netherlands Business Confidence November 2019

Netherlands: Business sentiment moderates in November

Confidence among Dutch manufacturers decreased in November from 3.6 in the prior month to 2.8. However, the index remained above the long-term average over the past 20 years of 1.0 and north of the neutral zero-threshold that separates optimism from pessimism.

The downtick came on the back of less rosy views on business expectations and order books.
