The S&P Global Ghana PMI decreased to 47.4 in May of 2022, from 48.3 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to a fourth consecutive month of contraction across the country's private sector and slightly stronger than in the previous month. Output fell at the quickest rate for just over two years and new orders declined for the third month in a row, reflecting global supply issues for some key inputs and soaring costs. This also led firms to scale back their buying activity. Meanwhile, companies continued to hire additional staff, with the rate of employment growth strongest for three months, despite a solid decline in backlogs. On the price front, inflationary pressures intensified, with overall input price inflation aceclerating to a more than seven-and-a-half-year high. Output price inflation also quickened to a fresh record high. Looking forward, firms remained optimistic but sentiment moderated. source: Markit Economics
