Jan. 8, 2007
Consumer goods increased 2.7%

Orders placed with companies in the German manufacturing sector rose in November, thanks to a large number of big-ticket purchases, mostly from abroad, official data showed on Jan. 8.

The Economy Ministry in Berlin calculated that German manufacturing orders rose by 1.5% in November from the figure for October, after declining by 0.7% the previous month.

A sector breakdown showed that orders placed with manufacturers of consumer goods rose by 2.7% on a monthly basis in November. Orders for capital goods were up 1.8% and orders for semi-finished goods rose by 0.8%.

Export orders jumped by 2.3% in November from October, while domestic orders edged up by 0.6% month-on-month.

Using a two-month comparison to iron out seasonal fluctuations, German manufacturing orders decreased by 1.5 percent in October and November combined from the figure for August and September, the ministry said.
