Among the PMI sub-indices, the new orders index rose from the previous month and remained over the 50-point mark.
The production volume index also rose and was over 50.
The employment index indicated growth for the 13th month in a row.
Delivery times were longer than in the previous month, although the index value was unchanged.
The gauge of purchased inventories increased and was above the 50-point mark.
