Overview of April 2018 Economy continues at a standstill


The economic diffusion index (DI) in April 2018 was 49.8, down 0.6 points from the previous month, and worsened for the first time in two months.  The domestic economy remains at a standstill, with the DI falling below 50 due to decreased construction volume and stagnant production activities, in addition to increased cost burden.
