Nigeria Private Sector Growth Nears 1-1/2-Year High
The Stanbic IBTC Bank Nigeria PMI rose to 57.7 in November 2019 from 56.9 in the previous month. The reading pointed to the quickest expansion in the country's private sector since June last year, as output and new orders grew sharply. Meanwhile, the rate of job creation was modest and weaker than in October. On the price front, purchase cost inflation accelerated to a 13-month high, namely fabric, meat and raw material costs, partly linked to the closure of the border and shortages of inputs. Subsequently, output charges rose solidly and at the fastest pace in 11 months. Looking ahead, business sentiment ticked up and remained strongly positive, amid planned product launches, business expansion plans and marketing efforts.

Meantime, purchasing activity went up further, helping support ongoing inventory building.
