Turkish Manufacturing Confidence Improves For Third Month
Turkey's manufacturing confidence improved for a third straight month in December to its strongest level in eight months, while capacity utilization eased slightly, survey data from the central bank showed on Thursday.
The manufacturing confidence index rose to 103.6 from 102 in November. The reading was the highest since April, when the score was 105.5.
A confidence reading above 100 suggests that business leaders remain optimistic regarding the outlook for the economy. Factories were optimistic regarding production, order book levels, and employment over the next three months.
Separate data from the central bank showed that the manufacturing capacity utilization rate eased to 77 percent in December from 77.2 percent in November. In October, the rate was 76.4 percent.

Australia Construction Sector Sinks Deeper Into Contraction
The construction sector in Australia continued to contract in December, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from the Australian Industry Group revealed on Wednesday with a six-and-a-half-year low PMI score of 38.9.
That's down from 40 in November and it moves further beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.
Overall activity, new orders and supplier deliveries all grew substantially weaker to fuel the overall index decline.
"Australia's construction sector ended 2019 on a low note with activity, employment and new orders all falling in December. The performance of the engineering construction sector slumped further, declining at the most precipitous rate in more than a decade. Commercial construction and apartment building activity also ended the year heading lower," Ai Group Head of Policy Peter Burn said.
China will on Thursday release December numbers for consumer and producer prices, highlighting a busy day for Asia-Pacific economic activity.

China also will see new loan data for December, with forecasts suggesting a total of 1,250 billion yuan - down from 1,390.0 billion in November.
Australia will provide November numbers for trade balance, with forecasts suggesting a surplus of A$4.10 billion - down from A$4.502 billion in October. Imports were worth A$36.25 billion and exports were at A$40.75 billion in October.
