Manufacturing Growth Slows

The Purchasing Managers' Index fell to a seasonally adjusted 50.6 in June from 50.7 in May, HSBC Holdings said in a report Friday, citing data compiled by Markit Economics. The survey-based index indicates growth with a figure above 50.

Manufacturing growth fell to the lowest level since March 2010 and well below the long-run average of 52.1.

"Growth of new orders is weaker than output growth, pointing to the likely buildup of inventories. If so, companies would have to adjust output growth to milder demand growth," Alexander Morozov, HSBC's chief economist for Russia and the CIS, said in the statement.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
