MYANMAR MANUFACTURING PMI IMPROVES TO 33.0 IN APRIL - MARKIT



The manufacturing sector in Myanmar continued to contract in April, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Markit Economics revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 33.0.

That's up from 27.5 in March and it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

All five of the PMI components had positive directional influences on the headline figure in April, but four (the exception being suppliers' delivery times) remained well inside negative territory. Output and new orders both fell at the fifth-fastest rates in the survey history, while stocks of purchases and employment contracted at the third- and fourth-quickest rates on record, respectively.

Although firms expect output to rise by April 2022 on balance, overall expectations were the weakest in over two years.

HONG KONG PRIVATE SECTOR PMI EBBS IN APRIL - MARKIT



The private sector in Hong Kong continued to expand in April, albeit at a slower pace, the latest survey from Markit Economics showed on Wednesday with a services PMI score of 50.3.

That's down from 50.5 in March although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

A reduced level of COVID-19 case numbers and the loosening of restrictions contributed to improving business conditions at the start of the second quarter of the year.

Total new orders had fallen for the same length of time but stabilized during April. While the situation regarding the pandemic had shown signs of improvement, a number of firms continued to be negatively impacted, preventing more pronounced expansions in output and new orders.
