Global Manufacturing Resilient

Despite Euro crisis, data show gains in a number of countries.

Manufacturing from the U.K. to India showed improvement in December, suggesting production is weathering the strains from Europe’s sovereign debt crisis.

Purchasing manager indexes for the U.K., Switzerland, China, India and Australia rose in December, while German unemployment fell more than economists forecast as exports of cars and machinery boomed, reports today showed. U.S. manufacturing growth may have accelerated to the fastest pace in six months, a report later today may show.
