Analysis

Hungary's seasonally-adjusted Purchasing Manager Index (PMI) fell to 51.7 in November from 54.4 in October, showing growth is slowing down, Halpim, the company which compiles the index, said on Friday.

The index value was only a fraction over the 51.6 average in November during the previous three years. The unadjusted index was 51.9 in November, falling from 56.1 in October. Average PMI for January-November was 54.0, well over the 51.3 average value during the previous three years.

The employment index rose 1.2 to 48.9, showing a contracting employment market for the second month in a row.
