Best Job Creation Rate in a Decade for Eurozone

29 June 2017

Eurozone businesses enjoyed their strongest quarter since 2011 in the three months to June 2017, in a further sign that economic growth is accelerating.

A survey by IHS Markit in the Eurozone’s manufacturing and services sectors identified this period as the strongest quarter of economic expansion for over six years.

High order book inflows and elevated levels of business confidence meant job creation remained one of the strongest recorded over the past decade, as firms continued to expand capacity to meet rising demand.
