Taiwan Manufacturing Sector Continues To Contract - IHS Markit

The manufacturing sector in Taiwan continued to contract in June, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from IHS Markit revealed on Wednesday with a manufacturing PMI score of 46.2.

That's up from 41.9 in May, although it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, there was a softer but still pronounced decline in output and new orders. Output prices fell further, although import costs increased.

Firms expressed renewed optimism towards the one-year business outlook.
