Dutch companies will book a steady increase in turnover from next year, apart from firms in the construction sector, according to Rabobank economists.
‘There are signs that the worst may be behind us, although there are difficult periods ahead,’ said Paula Oud, head of the bank’s statistics unit.
‘Sectors which were hard hit by the decline in world trade in 2009 (industry, wholesale and transport) will be the first to recover as world trade improves,’ she said.
Rabobank expects economic growth to be restricted to 0.25% next year.
