Thailand Manufacturing PMI Eases In January - Nikkei

The manufacturing sector in Thailand continued to expand in January, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 50.2.

That's down from 50.3 in December, although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, output rose further while new orders remained broadly unchanged.

Exports expanded marginally, while input cost inflation returned. Generally subdued expectations saw firms unwilling to take on more workers and refraining from building up inventories.
