The Emirates NBD Egypt PMI edged up to a 4-month high of 49.6 in December of 2018 from 49.2 in the previous month, still remaining in contraction territory. New orders fell at the weakest pace since August; purchasing activity expanded at the strongest rate in seven months and new export orders declined at a softer pace. Meanwhile, employment decreased modestly. On the price front, input cost inflation slowed to a new record low across the series, mainly due to lower purchase prices and salaries while output prices rose marginally, although the rise was slightly faster than November's 34-month low. Looking ahead, sentiment remained subdued, as firms expect output to be unchanged in the coming twelve months. Manufacturing PMI in Egypt is reported by Markit Economics.
