Manufacturing employment up


Employment in the manufacturing sector rose last month at its fastest pace in at least 17 years.

Manufacturing production continued to surge ahead, though at a fractionally weaker pace than in February, according to the latest Purchasing Managers' Index for the sector.

There was also good news for the Eurozone, as manufacturing in the bloc as a whole hit a 10-month high, providing further evidence of a possible turnaround in the zone's economy.
