In Germany and Italy, the CLIs continue to anticipate growth gaining momentum. In the United Kingdom, the indicator points to easing growth.

Amongst major emerging economies, the CLIs continue to anticipate signs of growth gaining momentum in the industrial sector in China, with similar indications now flagged in Russia. The outlook continues to point to firming growth in Brazil and stable growth momentum in India.
