A PMI over 50 signals expansion in the manufacturing sector.

Among the PMI sub-indices, the new orders index climbed from the previous month and remained over 50.

The production volume index also rose and stayed over the 50-point mark.

The employment index fell, but still showed growth.

Delivery times were longer than in February.
