Eurozone: Construction activity improved in September

Posted on October 07, 2019

The IHS Markit PMI rose to 50.5 points from 49.1 in August.

Construction activity in the eurozone fell slightly in September, according to data from the private company IHS Markit.

The PMI rose to 50.5 points from 49.1 in August.

"The data shows persistent downward trends as new orders continued to decline and job creation rates were mild for a third consecutive month," said Markit's economist Eliot Kerr.

The improvement came from the French construction sector, which remained in development, while Germany and Italy moved steadily.
