Greek Manufacturing PMI Returns to Contraction
The IHS Markit Greece Manufacturing PMI fell to 48.7 in October 2020 from 50 in the previous month, signaling a marginal decline in the health of the goods-producing sector. The sector once again lost momentum towards a recovery as the impacts of the resurgence in the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic dampened demand. The overall fall was largely due to a renewed drop in output and steeper fall in new orders, as demand among both domestic and external customers was reduced. As a result, spare capacity across the sector increased and firms cut workforce numbers once again. Nonetheless, business confidence strengthened amid hopes of an end to the pandemic.
