Overview of February 2018: A pause in the expansion trend


The economic diffusion index (DI) in February 2018 was 50.3, down 0.8 points from the previous month, a downturn for the first time in a year and a month, since January 2017, although it remained in the 50s range. In the domestic economy’s continuing expansion trend, heavy snow, an escalating manpower shortage, and an increase in the cost burden caused downward pressure and stalled the expansion trend.


Future outlook: Expansion continues

While the expansion in the domestic economy is expected to continue, with the corporate sector such as export and capital investment leading the way, the trend in the financial market has to be closely monitored.
