Belgium Business Confidence Fell Again in January
By Xavier Fontdegloria
Business sentiment in Belgium deteriorated in January for the
second consecutive month, according to data from the National Bank
of Belgium released Tuesday.
The business confidence index decreased slightly to 2.7 in
January from 3.6 in December, the lowest level since March
By sector, confidence improved among services providers, but
fell in manufacturing, construction and trade, the data showed.
Optimism among the firms surveyed was more evident in
expectations for general market demand and business activity, but
sentiment continued to be subdued when assessing the current level
of activity, the National Bank said.
