Dutch producers’ confidence improved in November to reach its highest level in more than three years, figures from the Central of Bureau of Statistics showed Monday.
The producers’ confidence index rose to 2.4 in November from 2.0 in the previous month. The latest score was the highest since June 2011.
The improvement in the index during the month was mainly due to more positive assessment of the expected production and stock of finished goods, the agency said.
A separate report released by the CBS showed that Dutch manufacturers plan to invest 15 percent more in 2015. This forecast for 2015 was much more positive than the estimate for this year, the agency said.
Refineries and chemical manufactures see investment growth of 23 percent for next year. At the same time, textiles, clothing and leather industry expects less investment for 2015 compared to this year.
