When we think of Greece, we think about white sandy beaches and azure waters. We do not consider their economy and the contribution the country makes to the eurozone. This week however, Greece found itself under the spotlight when it reported its highest factory activity in 21 years. The IHS Markit Greece Manufacturing PMI jumped to 58.6 in June of 2021 from 58.0in the previous month, marking the strongest growth in factory activity since April 2000. New orders increased as a result of stronger client demand from both domestic and foreign markets.
