The manufacturing sector in Myanmar continued to expand in April, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Thursday with a manufacturing PMI score of 53.7.
That's up from 52.4 in March, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
Individually, there was a stronger improvement in operating conditions, while new order growth accelerated to a 12-month high.
On the price front, the rate of input price inflation accelerated following a scarcity of raw materials and higher supplier costs. The increase in input costs was subdued in the context of the series history.
