Scottish private sector economy pauses for breath
11 October 2010
The recovery in the Scottish private sector paused in September, as activity across the
economy fell for the first time since June of last year. Nonetheless, at 49.8, from 53.0, the headline Bank of Scotland PMI posted a reading only fractionally below the 50.0 mark that separates rising from falling activity. Elsewhere, the survey pointed to continued recovery with new orders and employment both rising.
