The Nikkei Japan flash manufacturing PMI came in at 52.0 in May of 2017, compared a final 52.7 in April. The figure pointed to the ninth straight month of expansion in manufacturing activity despite falling to the lowest since November 2016, mainly due to soft job creation which was at its weakest since November 2016. Output, new orders, new export orders, employment, output prices, input prices, stocks of purchases, stocks of finished goods, quantity of purchases and suppliers' delivery times all increased at a slower rate. Backlogs of work was the only category to show a decrease.
