WELLINGTON (Reuters) – New Zealand’s manufacturing sector saw a lower level of expansion for November, a survey showed on Friday.

The Bank of New Zealand-Business NZ’s seasonally adjusted Performance of Manufacturing Index (PMI) was 50.6, down from 54.3 in the previous month.

A reading above 50 indicates an expansion in activity, while anything below that threshold indicates a contraction.
