Austria Factory Activity Continues to Recover
The Unicredit Bank Austria Manufacturing PMI ticked up to 51.7 in September of 2020 from 51 in the previous month. The latest reading was still down slightly on July's recent high, however, and indicative of only a modest rate of improvement in overall manufacturing conditions. September saw further increases in output and new orders, with the respective rates of growth still solid but slower than at the start of the recovery. Stronger output expectations and rising backlogs of work meanwhile helped slow the rate of factory job shedding to the weakest since the start of the virus outbreak.
