September 1, 2020
Business confidence rose to 42.5 in August from July's 37.8. August's result marked the strongest sentiment since February. Consequently, the index moved closer to the 50-point threshold, but still indicated pessimism among businesses.
August's rise was driven by a broad-based improvement, with sentiment in the commerce sector, construction sector and industrial sector all picking up.
