Output declined less than in a month earlier while new orders increased for the third month running and new export orders rose for the first time since January. Also, employment grew slightly in anticipation of expansion of output. Meantime, unfavourable exchange rate movements led to a noticeable rise in input costs which has eaten into margins.
