The manufacturing sector in Australia continued to expand in January, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from the Australian Industry Group showed on Thursday with a Performance of Manufacturing Index score of 58.7.
That’s up from 56.2 in December, and it moves further above the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
It also marks the 16th straight month of expansion, which is the longest winning streak in 13 years.
All seven sub-indexes expanded, including production, deliveries, new orders, stocks, sales, employment and exports.
