Canada manufacturing growth pace little changed in November

Says IHS Markit director Rob Dobson: "UK manufacturing shifted up a gear in November, with growth of output, new orders and employment all gathering pace".

The survey was bolstered by surging orders at home and from Europe's recovering economy.

Overall, the survey added to signs that manufacturing could be a bright spot next year, when the slowdown in the overall economy is likely to deepen as Britain approaches its departure from the European Union in March 2019.

November's reading was the second highest this year after September's 52.4 and marked the 16th straight month that the index has remained above the 50 mark that separates expansion from contraction, pointing to improved economic resilience in the world's second largest economy, experts said.

But price pressures represented a downside in the latest PMI.

Rising costs were commonly associated with higher prices paid for imported raw materials, with demand for inputs exceeding supply.
