Japan Service Activity Falls the Most in Over 3 Years
The Jibun Bank Japan Services PMI was revised lower to 49.4 in December 2019 from a preliminary estimate of 50.6, signalling the steepest contraction in service sector output in over three years. New order growth slowed due to the first decline in foreign demand since June, while backlogs of work dropped at the strongest rate for over one-and-a-half years. Meanwhile, the rate of job creation was the fastest in six months on the back of expansion plans and the provision of new services. On the price front, input costs increased amid higher fuel and labour expenses, while output charges were reduced for the first time since July 2017. Looking ahead, business optimism eased from November's five-month high.
