Japan’s manufacturing sector has registered growth for the first time in three months, according to the Markit/JMMA flash Japan PMI.
A score of 50 is the line separating expansion from contraction, with a number above it indicating growth.
The information was compiled between June 12 and 19.
There was a significant bounce in new orders, up 52.0 from 49.6.
“... [I]t looks like the Japanese manufacturing sector has taken a positive upward trajectory,” said Amy Brownbill from Markit.
