Euro zone manufacturing activity accelerated last month as supply chain bottlenecks eased, although the improvement was not evenly spread across member countries and factories still faced high inflationary pressures, a survey showed on Tuesday.
IHS Markit's final manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) rose to a five-month high of 58.7 in January from December's 58.0, below an initial "flash" estimate of 59 but comfortably above the 50 mark separating growth from contraction.

Rupee slipped 17 paise to close at 74.82, paring initial gains, as caution set in among market participants after the govt raised the fiscal deficit target above than that of FY22 in the Budget. Meanwhile, the dollar index fell 0.19 percent to 96.35 Monday.
Chief Economic Advisor V Anantha Nageswaran believes that India can become a $5 trillion economy by the FY 2025-26 or 2026-27.
Addressing the press conference that was held after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman tabled the Union Budget 2022-2023, the CEA said that if the GDP continues to grow at 8 percent, a $5-trillion economy for India is possible.
"If we continue to retain the path of 8 percent of real GDP growth, it will translate into even 8 percent dollar GDP growth. If we extrapolate it, we should be a $5-trillion economy in terms of nominal GDP in the financial year 2025-26 or the financial year 2026-27," he said.
The telecom minister Ashwani Vaishnaw on Tuesday said that the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India's (TRAI) recommendation on the 5G spectrum is expected to come by March, after which spectrum auction will be held expeditiously for the rollout of the next-generation service.
The minister said the Department of Telecom is parallelly working on other auction-related processes to start the spectrum auction at the earliest. Commenting on the Union Budget 2022-23, the minister said "recommendations on 5G are expected by March".
The Union Budget lacks any tangible measures to increase revenue generation even though the capital expenditure plans have gone up significantly and the fiscal deficit estimate suggests that the government is relying too much on strong growth to help drive fiscal consolidation, rating agency Moody's said in a note.
The Budget underscores the government's previous emphasis on capex to sustain near-term recovery from the pandemic, while simultaneously paving the way for longer-term restructuring of the economy, it said.
Here are some excerpts from the Budget 2022
Borrowing plans: India plans to sell a record amount of bonds—worth Rs 15 trillion—in FY23. As per budget documents, net borrowings for the coming fiscal are estimated at Rs 11.2 trillion.

GDP estimate: India’s GDP is pegged at 9.2 percent for FY22, highest amongst all the large economies, FM Sitharaman said Tuesday.
