It’s taken longer than expected, but North America’s manufacturing sector—especially south of the border—is turning around. So far, the forecast for the new year looks bright. The PMI recorded a third consecutive month of growth in December, with nine of the 18 manufacturing industries showing growth, reports the Institute for Supply Management. And according to a report from TD Economics, an affiliate of TD Bank, New England will see faster economic growth relative to the rest of the country this year.
When things are looking up south of the border, this usually has a knock-on effect in Canada—and so it has: According to the RBC Canadian Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (RBC PMI), production and new orders in Canada both rose strongly in December.
