The S&P Global Ghana PMI fell to 45.9 in August of 2022, the lowest in 28 months from 48.8 in July, pointing to the seventh consecutive month of decline in private sector activity. Output and new orders fell at sharp and accelerated rates while workforce numbers were cut for the second month in a row, amid subdued demand conditions. As a result, purchasing activity continued to decrease, albeit modestly, while firms reduced their inventories at the quickest pace for 20 months. On the price front, overall input price inflation quickened to a near eight-year high amid unfavourable dollar-cedi exchange rate movements and rising fuel costs. In turn, output prices increased at the sharpest pace on record. Lastly, sentiment regarding output in the year ahead remained positive, but eased to a five-month low, amid concerns over the economy, interest rate hikes, and high inflation. source: Markit Economics
