Study Report: PMI Panel Survey

About the Study

The PMI Survey that is conducted by MMRD is the first ever panel survey in Myanmar, that covers the manufacturing sector in 5 cities across the country based on questionnaire responses from panels of senior purchasing executives or similar positions in over 400 companies.

Questionnaires are completed in the second half of each month and the survey results are then processed by Markit’s economists. Respondents are asked to state whether business conditions for a number of variables have improved, deteriorated or stayed the same compared with the previous month. Reasons for any changes are also requested from respondents.
