Dutch retailers predict sales will increase this Christmas despite the weak economy.

AMSTERDAM - Despite the economic slowdown, the retail branch forecasts that consumers will not be spending less money on presents this Christmas.

A council representing different sectors of the Dutch retail industry predicted that sales will be up by EUR 720 million in the days leading up to Christmas, 3 percent more than 2007.

That figure is 50 percent more than in an average week.

Laptops, digital cameras and jewellery are expected to sell especially well.
