Japan Manufacturing PMI Picks Up Steam – Nikkei

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.
