TAIWAN’S PMI HIGHEST SINCE FEBRUARY 2018

The official manufacturing purchasing managers’ index (PMI) last month climbed to 59.3, the highest since February 2018, as growth momentum gained traction, prompting companies to step up purchasing activity to meet customer demand, the Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (CIER, 中華經濟研究院) said yesterday.It was the fourth consecutive month that the index clocked positive movement in all sectors, lending support to a stable recovery for Taiwan’s export-oriented economy.“We saw all sectors emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a solid increase in new business orders and selling prices,” CIER president Chang Chuang-chang (張傳章) told a media briefing in Taipei.The improvement was also evident in suppliers of machinery equipment and raw materials, which had lagged other sectors due to COVID-19 disruptions, he said.PMI data aim to capture the health of the manufacturing industry, with scores of larger than 50 indicating expansion and values below the threshold suggesting contraction.By Crystal Hsu / Staff reporter (ICE TAIPEI)
