Unemployment in Netherlands

Netherlands Unemployment | Economic News & Forecasts

Netherlands - Unemployment

The economy is likely to have shifted down a gear in the second quarter of the year, after robust fixed investment and stockpiling powered growth in the first quarter. Industrial production contracted at the sharpest rate in April since December last year despite strong transport equipment output, while the manufacturing PMI expanded more softly in April and May than in January–March. Meanwhile, business confidence cooled in May from the first quarter amid less optimism over expected output and order books, and pessimism among consumers remained widespread through May. More positively, retail sales growth accelerated in April, with rampant growth in online shopping. Furthermore, exports rebounded in April and grew at the quickest pace since October 2018—seemingly defying a more hostile external backdrop.
