    06.01.2016 13:29 Final Markit/Nikkei services purchasing managers' index for Japan falls to 51.5 in December

    The final Markit/Nikkei services Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for Japan fell to 51.5 in December from 51.6 in November.

     

    A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector, a reading below 50 indicates contraction of activity.

     

    The index was driven by a rise in new orders.

     

    "New business growth in the service sector accelerated to a four-month high in December, supporting a further increase in both output and employment," economist at Markit, Amy Brownbill, said.
