Lebanon Private Sector Remains in Contraction The BLOM Lebanon PMI edged up to 46.9 in September of 2021, from 46.6 in August, but still pointing to economic contraction across Lebanon's private sector. Output and new orders declined, as fuel shortages compounded political instability and weak domestic demand. Meanwhile, employment levels were kept broadly unchanged. On the price front, overall input prices declined for the first time since January 2019, mainly due to an improvement in the US dollar exchange rate. However, selling prices increased for a twentieth month running in September, but at a softer pace. Looking forward, firms' expectations remained deeply pessimistic for the next 12 months amid an unstable political situation. source: Markit Economics
