Denmark's industrial sector expanded in December, after contracting for two months in a row, data from a survey by DILF showed Monday.
The purchasing managers index (PMI) increased to 59.8 in December from 48.2 in November. A PMI reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector, while one below suggests decline. In October, the reading was 43.7.
New orders received by Danish firms increased significantly in December, after falling in the previous two months.
Reflecting the robust order growth, firms increased production markedly during the month, and the pace of growth accelerated from November. Employment in the sector grew modestly in December, recovering from the previous months' decline.
