The latest Prompt Manufacturing Index-Bank Indonesia (PMI-BI) moved above the 50% threshold into an expansionary phase in the fourth quarter of 2021 at 50.17% from 48.75% in the third quarter of 2021. All components contributed to the improvement, led by Production Volume, Order Volume and Inventory.
