Indonesia Manufacturing Sector Falls Into Contraction - Nikkei

The manufacturing sector in Indonesia swung to contraction in January, the latest survey from Nikkei revealed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 49.9.

That's down from 51.2 in December, and it moves beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, output was broadly unchanged while new orders declined, although business confidence remained positive.

Pressures on supply chains meanwhile intensified at the beginning of the year as material shortages continued to disrupt delivery schedules.

Cost inflation hit its lowest reading in survey history.
