The Vietnamese manufacturing sector ended February with modest improvement in business conditions, supported by growth in new orders, output and employment, a report compiled by the London-based global information provider IHS Markit revealed on Monday.
Meanwhile, the Vietnam Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) went up to 51.6 in February from 51.3 in January, signaling a modest improvement in business conditions. The health of the sector has now strengthened in three successive months, according to the report.
The sustained growth of new orders was recorded, helping to drive the improvement in overall business conditions.
Total new orders were supported by a return to growth of new export business amid some signs of improving international demand. Rising new orders was also the main factor behind the renewed increases in output, read the report.
Meanwhile, employment increased for the second time in three months as firms responded to rises in demand and production requirements. - Vietnam
