Nederlandse transportsector en industrie kwetsbaar voor nieuwe coronagolf buitenland

Pressrelease (in Dutch only)

Een wereldwijde opleving van het coronavirus en mogelijke bijbehorende buitenlandse lockdownmaatregelen zullen Nederlandse bedrijven in de transportsector en de industrie hard raken. Dat blijkt uit onderzoek van het Centraal Planbureau en het Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek. De omzet in deze sectoren is sterk afhankelijk van de wereldwijde exportvraag. In tegenstelling tot de Nederlandse dienstensector die vooral wordt getroffen door de binnenlandse maatregelen, worden transportbedrijven en de industrie juist geraakt door maatregelen in andere landen en terugval in de wereldhandel. Nieuwe lockdowns in het buitenland hebben daarom grote economische gevolgen voor deze sectoren.

Rebound in world trade continues

Pressrelease

The rebound in world trade continues. The CPB World Trade Monitor shows that the volume of world trade increased 4.8% in July. This is somewhat less than in June, when world trade grew with 7,9% compared with May. The rebound arises from the fact that in a lot of countries lockdown measures have been lifted. In the eurozone, exports grew 5.9%, while imports grew 4.1%. Striking is the recovery in the US, where both imports and exports grew with roughly 11%. Chinese exports also made a huge jump (+9.5%), while Chinese imports rose with just 0.5%. Also in other advanced economies the rebound continues. Despite these promising figures, world trade has not yet recovered to pre COVID-19 outbreak levels.

A further decline in world trade in May, but also signs of recovery in the eurozone

Pressrelease

World trade fell 1.1% in May. This means that the total decline in 2020 up till May is 17%. This follows from the new release of the World Trade Monitor of the Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis (CPB). This means that world trade has decreased by around 17% in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has played a major role in this. All over the world, both production and consumption have declined due to various measures taken to limit the spread of the virus. This has a great impact on international trade.
