PMI manufacturing statistics – Barclays Corporate comment

Press Release   •   Nov 02, 2011 09:08 GMT

Mark Lee, Head of Manufacturing at Barclays Corporate comments on today's PMI manufacturing figures.

“Today's figures show that last month's increase was a blip in the downward trend that seems to have set in. Turbulence in key export markets is clearly weighing heavily although, if Eurozone stabilisation is successful, we may start to see some reprieve for those brave companies who look to invest.”
