Spain's manufacturing activity expanded at the fastest pace in nearly 11 years in November, survey data from IHS Markit showed.
Europe The sector is clearly in good shape
Output growth hit a two-and-a-half year high amid another marked increase in new orders. Employment also increased in November, at the fastest rate since April 1998.
Input costs continued to rise sharply in November. As a result, output price inflation quickened to a four-month high.
"The sector is clearly in good shape as 2017 draws to a close, with hopes of continuing strong performance in 2018," Andrew Harker, an associate director at IHS Markit, said. ■
