The manufacturing sector in Japan continued to expand in August, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 52.2.
That’s up from 52.1, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
Individually, output and new orders continued to increase, while domestic and international demand strengthened.
Job creation was maintained at a solid rate.
