Australian Chamber-Westpac Survey of Industrial Trends | March 2018
The Australian Chamber-Westpac Survey of Industrial Trends has been conducted for nearly 50 years. It provides a timely update on the manufacturing sector and insights into economy-wide trends.
The March Quarter result shows further gains in manufacturing output. While new orders advanced there was some loss of momentum early in 2018, translating into a consolidation in employment and less intense use of overtime.
