The Dutch consumer confidence index fell to -23.6 in March, compared with +8.1% a year ago and is now lower than the EU average, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday.
‘This is extremely unusual,’ the CBS said, adding that there has only been a similar fall once in the past 25 years.
In March last year, Dutch consumers were among the most confident about the economy.
