The IHS Markit Russia Services PMI increased sharply to 52.7 in January 2021 from 48.0 in the previous month. The latest reading marked the first monthly expansion in the sector since last September, as both output and new orders returned to growth. New export orders, however, fell once again, albeit at the slowest rate since last August. Meantime, the job shedding eased to the slowest in the current five-month sequence, as pressure on capacity built, while the backlogs of work rose for the first time since November 2017 following a renewed rise in new order inflows. On the price front, input cost inflation eased for the second straight month, due to a rise in prices from the supplier, fuel, and unfavourable exchange rate movements. Also, output charges inflation slowed to a 6-month low. Finally, business morale improved to the highest since October 2019, due to hopes of an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and social-distancing measures. source: Markit Economics
