Vietnam Manufacturing PMI Slides In September — Nikkei
The manufacturing sector in Vietnam continued to expand in September, albeit at a slower rate, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 51.5.
That's down from 53.7 in August, although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
Individually, there were slower rises in output, new orders and employment.
Last month saw the first reduction in output prices in 13 months, while the rate of input cost inflation also eased.
