    JAPAN MANUFACTURING SECTOR SLOWS IN APRIL - JIBUN



    The manufacturing sector in Japan continued to expand in April, albeit at a slower rate, the latest survey from Jibun Bank showed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 53.5.

    That's down from 54.1 in March although it remains above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    The lower reading of the headline index was partly the result of a softer rise in new orders. Sales increased for the seventh month running, though growth eased to a milder pace overall. Firms commented that growth was held back by delivery delays and the Russia-Ukraine war. Geopolitical tensions and rising COVID-19 cases in China continued to weigh heavily on export orders, which fell solidly for the second month running.

    Production levels increased for the second successive month in April, with the rate of growth little-changed from March. Firms linked the expansion to rising new orders, though difficulty securing inputs had prevented an acceleration in growth.

        VIETNAM MANUFACTURING PMI UNCHANGED AT 51.7 IN APRIL - S&P



        The manufacturing sector in Vietnam continued to expand in April at a steady pace, the latest survey from S&P Global showed on Wednesday with a manufacturing PMI score of 51.7.

        That's unchanged from the March reading remains above the boom-or-bust line.

        Both output and employment returned to growth in April, after having dropped during March. In both cases, firms benefited from falls in COVID-19 case numbers following the peak of the latest wave in March. The improved pandemic situation enabled employees to return to work, while there were also widespread reports of recruitment. In fact, the rate of job creation was the fastest for a year.

        Rising capacity helped firms to expand output and take advantage of strengthening customer demand. Output increased for the sixth time in the past seven months.

              JAPAN SERVICES SECTOR EXPANDS IN APRIL - JIBUN BANK



              The services sector in Japan swung into expansion territory in April, the latest survey from Jibun Bank revealed on Monday with a services PMI score of 50.7.

              That's up from 49.4 in March and it moves above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

              While the lifting of remaining restrictions aided the recovery in activity, stronger growth was held back by uncertainty linked to the Ukraine war, however. Total new business, meanwhile, fell for the third time in four months in April, albeit only marginally.

              Service providers commonly attributed this to weaker domestic orders amid concerns about the outbreak of war and potential spill-over effects of rising COVID-19 cases in China. Growth in markets outside Asia however, contributed to the first rise in foreign demand for the first time since last December, and at the quickest rate for two-and-a-half years.

              The survey also showed that the composite index improved to 51.1 in April from 50.3 in March.

              The positive reading was the second in successive months and the strongest recorded since last December. Services firms reported a renewed rise in activity, while manufacturers signaled an unchanged, moderate rate of expansion.

              Aggregate new orders stagnated in April, however, amid a renewed fall at service providers and softer growth at manufacturers. As a result, weaker new business inflows eased pressure on private sector capacity and allowed firms to work through outstanding business which fell for the third time in four months.

                                JAPAN CONSUMER PRICES RISE 2.5% ON YEAR IN APRIL
