Overview of November 2018: Weak domestic economy

The economic diffusion index (DI) in November 2018 was 49.5, up 0.5 point from the previous month, and the first improvement in four months. The domestic economy has improved because construction demand, such as disaster recovery, reconstruction work and housing construction, has rippled across related industries. Along with the contribution of demand towards the end of the year and stability in fuel price, the weakening trend temporarily receded.
