Poland: Manufacturing PMI rises to highest level since March 2015
February 1, 2017
The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) for Poland rose from December’s 54.3 to 54.8 in January, according to IHS Markit. The result marks the highest level in nearly two years and the index now lies further above the 50-threshold that separates expansion from contraction in the manufacturing sector.
January’s improvement reflected faster growth in output and new orders. However, the rate of job creation eased slightly while inflationary pressure was high. A new future output index was included in the survey this month and signaled strong sentiment among firms.
