  • [01] Greek PMI fell to 48.7 points in July

    Greece's Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) shrank to 48.7 points in July from 50.4 in June despite a rapid increase in workforce in Greek manufacturers' factories (the fastest rate in the last nine years), as production fell again due to a significant decline in incoming new orders and a decline in supply inventories, Markit said on Monday.

    The seasonally-adjusted PMI index showed that Greek manufacturers were hit by a decline in production volume in July, the fifth decline in the last seven months, reflecting weaker demand as new incoming orders fell for the 23rd successive month. New export orders, however, grew reflecting increased demand from France, Lebanon and Bulgaria. Despite a shrinking production Greek manufacturers continued raising their workforce numbers in July, at the highest rate recorded in the last nine months. Pending works continued falling, while purchasing activity fell for the third successive month. Average delivery times continued rising for the 20th successive month, hit by strike mobilization in Greek ports. Inflow costs rose further in July for the fourth month in a row, while outflow prices fell.
