The BusinessNZ Performance of Manufacturing Index in New Zealand declined by 22.1 points to 40.1 in August of 2021 from a downwardly revised 62.2 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the first contraction in the New Zealand manufacturing sector since December 2020 on the back of another nationwide lockdown due to a fresh outbreak of the Delta variant of the coronavirus. Employment (54.5) managed to keep its head above water, but all other sub-index values were in contraction with Production (27.7) the hardest hit. Although manufacturers outside of Auckland have returned to alert levels that allow business operations to restart, any moves towards the sector getting back into expansion will ultimately depend on how soon Auckland can also return to lower alert levels. source: Business New Zealand
