Manufacturing PMI in South Korea stood at 48 in November of 2016, the same as in October. It was the fourth consecutive month of contraction, driven by a further decline in output and new orders. Manufacturers cut back on both employment and input buying, with the latter decreasing at the sharpest rate in nearly one-and-a-half years. On the price front, input prices rose at the sharpest rate in over five years, while charges fell further as clients continued to place pressure on companies to lower their selling prices.
