In June Japan’s factory pursuit expansion reduced to a four-month low point, since China’s COVID-19 restrictions disturbed the supply chains, although several other economies specifically in Asia were also coping with the headwinds in the middle of increasing concerns related to the outlook from a possible U.S. economic depression.
