Canada manufacturing growth cools in Aug, but employment jumps

Rob Dobson, a director at IHS Markit, which compiles the survey, said: "At the moment, the survey data suggest that the manufacturing economy remains in good health despite Brexit uncertainty, and should help support ongoing growth in the economy in the third quarter".

IHS Markit said manufacturing output growth in August hit a seven-month high and new orders rose at the fastest pace in three months.

A private sector survey confirmed earlier data pointing to a pick-up in Chinese manufacturing in August, but some economists remained unconvinced about the staying power of the upturn. This was above consensus forecasts of 55.0, the strongest reading for four months and the second-highest reading in 3 years.

Combined, the findings of the official and private sector surveys suggested industrial output was resilient last month.

Other Asian electronics producers were also still riding high.
