Netherlands - Current Account

Economic activity is likely to have maintained a robust pace in the third quarter, although it is expected to have moderated slightly from the previous quarter. Growth in industrial production and retail sales softened at the start of Q3, with industrial output growth easing to an over one-year low. In addition, business sentiment slipped in August on less rosy views on future output and order books. On a more positive note, the manufacturing PMI rose in August for the first time in six months on sharper rises in output and new orders. Moreover, the unemployment rate remained close to a near-decade low in August, while consumer confidence remained elevated at the close of the third quarter. In the political arena, on 18 September the government presented a mildly expansionary budget for next year, which should help maintain robust growth and still predicts a notable fiscal surplus.
