Exchange Rate in Netherlands
Netherlands - Exchange Rate (average of period)The Dutch economy seems to have kept a steady pace of growth in the first quarter on the back of robust, albeit moderating, domestic demand. Private consumption likely eased in the quarter, despite retail sales growth remaining robust in the first two months of the year and despite the tightening job market. Notably, unemployment fell below pre-crisis levels in March. That said, confidence among consumers took a nose-dive in the quarter and inflationary pressures picked up markedly, likely owing to the VAT hike at the start of the year. In addition, business sentiment cooled somewhat in Q1, although still remained elevated. This, coupled with softer manufacturing PMI data, points to a slightly weaker expansion in Q1 than in the previous quarter.
