Business Climate Indicator increases further in November
In November 2013, the Business Climate Indicator (BCI) for the euro area rose for the seventh successive month, turning positive for the first time since March 2012. It increased by 0.26 points to +0.18. The assessments of past production, the level of overall order books and export order books improved sharply. Also production expectations increased, though to a lesser degree, while managers' assessment of the stocks of finished products remained broadly unchanged.
The next BCI results are due to be published on 9 January 2014.
