Omicron sweeps across the emerging world

The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is causing new virus cases to surge in the emerging world. Many EMs are reporting record daily cases or that new infections are rising sharply.

CEE manufacturing strengthens, but India suffers

Markit’s aggregate emerging market manufacturing PMI dropped back in May as new virus waves took a toll on some countries, notably India, although they suggest that the manufacturing recovery in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) continued strongly.
