(ANSA) - BELGRADE, FEB 19 - The Flash Germany Manufacturing PMI index of IHS Markit reached 60.6 points in February, a 36-month high, from the 57.1 registered in January. The Services activity index decreased to 45.9 points, a 9-month low. "The positive manufacturing performance came despite a backdrop of increasing supply-side pressures. February saw record reports of delays in the delivery of inputs amid raw material shortages and squeezed transport capacity, as well an associated spike in costs," IHS Markit said. (ANSA).
