Hungary's seasonally-adjusted Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) rose to 58.9 points in April from 57.6 in March, the Hungarian Association of Logistics, Purchasing and Inventory Management (Halpim) said on Monday.

Among the PMI sub-indices, the new orders index climbed from the previous month and remained over 50.

The production volume index also rose and stayed over the 50-point mark.

The employment index increased, and showed growth.

Delivery times were longer than in March.

The gauge of purchased inventories rose at a slower pace and was over the 50-point mark.
